We have just recently connected to our company's large domain. Our little subsidiary here consist of about 300 people. We were connected in the following manner:[Corporate] | | [Some Router] | | [Our Company's Server LAN] (This includes our e-mail server) | | [Pix 506] | | [Our Company's LAN]
I've taken a look at the Pix, and everything looks correct. However, ever since we put in the PIX, there are people on the network that have trouble sometimes connecting to the e-mail server. Eventually, everything will connect, but sometimes it takes 30 seconds to a minute. The PIX is configured so that [Our Company's LAN] is actually on the outside of it. I thought that was funny since we are considered to be the bad people, but it does make sense. It's also configured so that it responds to any ARP request for anybody on [Our Company's LAN]. I'm wondering if the PIX just can't support 300 users trying to connect to our e-mail server. If we upgrade the PIX 506 to a larger better PIX, will this possibly solve the situation?
