I have asked the same question a few different ways and for the most part the answers have been WAY over my head but - here goes again.
I recently purchased a PIX 501.
I know next to nothing about configuring it.
I hooked it up to my cable modem and everything is now flowing through it.
I reset it so everything is back to factory default values.
I am able to access it through HyperTerminal OR through the Web Utility, I prefer HyperTerminal.
So HERE is my question:
- Now that it is hooked up and reset what is a next step I can take to FURTHER secure my PC through configuration of the PIX?
- What is the EXACT command I would type to prevent the PIX from allowing outbound traffic through a certain port, say 27374?
a. First get into configure terminal mode and type "access-list deny_outbound deny tcp any any eq 27374" and press enter?
b. Then type "clear xlate" and press enter?
c.Then type "access-list deny_outbound permit ip any any" and press enter?
Question 2 is what I got from this earlier post:
At any rate, I'm trying again so please help me if you think you can.
I'm more interested in the answer to question 1, I just want to make my PC as secure as possible from unwanted inbound and outbound connection attempts.
