Hiding a PIX from nmap and port-scanners.

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Francois Labreque, Nov 11, 2003.

  1. Tests with PixOS 6.2(2) report:

    ICMP Access prohibited (3/13) for ports 23 and 1467 and RST on every other port.
    Upper management would like the pix to be invisible from the outside, without
    putting a router with ACLs in from of it, is it possible?

    Not that I know of. There isn't any way to turn off icmp generated
    at the PIX itself, and ports 23 and 1467 always react even when
    the corresponding services are turned off.
