If you want to create a DMZ in PIX, then you will need to configure at least three interfaces in your PIX:
- inside interface – This interface is connected to your local LAN.
- outside interface – This interface is connected to your Internet router.
- DMZ interface – This interface is connected to your DMZ network. You will have to assign this interface a security level between 1 and 99.
Once these interfaces have been configured, you must configure PIX to let it know what access should be granted from the Internet towards the DMZ. This can be done using the access-list command.
