I've a small home network => 2 pc's, PS2 and a Pinnacle Showcenter 200 and I use my Cisco PIX 501 as a "smart switch" and i've configured my network DHCP. Now I need 1 pc (server) to communicate with the Showcenter (client) OKAY i've got them communicating, BUT it's not working all that well (connection seems slow / to stall from time to time) Everything else in my network works really great (and fast; 100mbps) so it seems a problem in the communication between the (Server) PC and the (Client) Pinnacle Showcenter 200. and I know almost for sure that the problem is a mis configuation at the Cisco PIX 501 Firewall.
I use these rules to allow ALL??? INSIDE (to ouside) network traffic: ACCESS RULE: Source - inside:any Destination - outside:any Interface - inside (outbound) Service - IP TRANSLATION RULE: (original) Interface - inside (original) Address - inside:any/0.0.0.0 (translated) Interface - outside (translated) Address - interface PAT (options) DNS Rewrite - NO (options) Maximum Connections - unlimited (options) Embryonic Limit - unlimited (options) Random Sequence Number - yes
Pinnacle Showcenter 200 needs these next 2 ports to communicate with the (server) PC: => 8000 (TCP) and 1900 (UDP) and these are used only for internall network communication (not for outside (connect to internet) connections)
Do I need to open these in my configuration? because I thought the Cisco PIX501 allowed all internal traffic by default? Or am I wrong? If I do need to open these ports for the internall communication, how should I do this???
with Kind Regards, Tim
