    Yes the web server on the Linux box works fine, with no changes to the PIX
    and yes the IIS box doesnot.
    I'll check the all assigned option and let you knowthat.
    Thanks for the help

    > Shahed,
    > Are you saying that your Web server on the Linux box works fine, with no
    changes to the PIX, where the Windows IIS server doesn't (using the same
    IP)? Is the IIS server configured to use an IP address other than "All
    Assigned" (in the Web site properties)? Just a guess, but you may have some
    other IP address configured there (if I read this right)...
