In my project, the complete network is a public ip /24 network devided into
a lot of small segments connected to individual vlans.
The pix has to control who can talk to who,
So everything is nat0
A solution could be no to create a translation-map to every network so no
traffic can flow as you point out.
But then the nat-0 rules function as a sort of firewall functions, perhaps
not so clean to do that.
At the moment i've created nat-0 rules exactly as one would expect, in every
network direction no change of ipadress.

understand that
Well it is PIX7.

Any other, better ideas how to cleanly manage such a network?
