    Hi,

    I'm reading through the CCSP CSPFA Book and the following explanation
    under "Configuration of AAA on the Cisco PIX Firewall" confuses me.

    "inbound - Specifies that the PIX is to authenticate inbound traffic
    (originates on the inside interface and is directed to the outside
    interface)." (Page 280)

    Shouldn't it rather be originates on the OUTSIDE interface and is
    directed to the INSIDE interface?

    Thanks

    Yeah, I saw that typo when I went through studying for the test. You are
    correct. The Outbound description is also backwards as I recall.
