RE: Protecting PIX Firewall at the Perimeter Router

The Cisco way to do it would be to run the IOS Firewall Feature Set on the
perimeter router and use CBACS.

Put an OpenBSD firewall in front of the PIX.  That should protect it.

Hi All,

I wanted some suggestions\practical experiences for protecting a
Firewall wall at the Perimeter Router Level.

We have a PIX Firewall connected to our Cisco Router, which is connected
to the Internet. Should there be any IOS Firewall Rules in the Router,
other than blocking Telnet,FTP etc to the Firewall itself ?

PIX will be doing NAT, protecting DMZ machines, and IPSec connections.
