PIX/ASA to Junos converter


Attached is a PIX/ASA to SRX/Junos converter.


It's written in Perl and has a few instructions
included. I hope someone finds it useful.

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

Minor version update - bug fixed in a core routine when newer versions of NetAddr::IP were used.

Seems to work with older versions still, though.

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

David -

 

WoW! - What an awesome tool. I was doing some testing it ran an old pix 6.x config file and within seconds it converted all the objects and rules. I'm so physced to work more with this tool.

 

I do need some help though. I ran a different PIX (version 8.03) config file and it errors out quickly with the below error. Any ideas?

 

admin@ubuntu:~/hms$ perl px2sx.pl hmspix

Starting conversion to Junos...


Zones & Routes...
Can't call method "network" on an undefined value at px2sx.pl line 83.

 

Line 83 on the PIX config is simply a named object. Are there version limitations with the tool?

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

This sounds awesome but I am having a hell of a time getting it to work on WIndows :/

 

I have no knowledge of using Perl, but I grabbed a copy of ActivePerl community edition 5.14 and tried it out, it errored asking for NetAddr IP module. This is where I get lost Smiley Sad Is there any simple instructions on doing this?

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

As with most of my experiences with code and unix installs you fix one tihng only to find another dependancy. I somehow managed to get IP.pm but now more issues:

 

C:\temp\perl px2sx.pl asa.txt
Can't locate auto/NetAddr/IP/Util/autosplit.ix in @INC (@INC contains: C:/Perl64
/site/lib C:/Perl64/lib .) at C:/Perl64/lib/AutoLoader.pm line 173.

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

Yes - currently it doesn't handle version 8 NATs. But I've sorted out most of the other bugs, so it's probably time to upload a newer version.

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

It's not hard - run up the Perl Package Manager (comes with ActivePerl) and mark the NetAddr-IP package for install.

You might have to change the view to 'All Packages' first, and it does take a while to start up so patience is needed.

5.14 should be OK - it uses the 'given - when' syntax so anything from 5.10 onwards should be OK.

Newer version. Some support for v8 config files now.

Various bugs fixed & features added.

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

Thanks David that new version worked perfectly!

 

I figured out my issue earlier with perl also - I was trying to get it to install on a machine that did not have direct Internet access. You'd never figure how hard it is to install modules for perl without Internet access Smiley Sad In the end I just grabbed a laptop and used my celluar mobile access and installed it that way - easy as can be Smiley Happy

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

Very nice script!!! When I run it I get the address books, zones, destination/static NAT, and routes, but an error on 506:

 

Can't call method "within" on an undefined value at px2sx.pl line 506.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Nick

[ Edited ]

I receive a similar but slightly different error...

Can't locate object method "within" via package "some object group in my pix config" (perhaps you forgot to load "some object group in my pix config"?) at px2sx.pl line 506.

 

Any help would be apreciated.

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

 

Line 506 is in a core function which works out which zone a given object is in.


It's called not only directly from the main loops, but also from within another function.

 

I'd need to see the (sanitised) config file that it fails on in order to sort it out.

 

From what you describe it could be an object, network-object or access-list line.

 

It's not been extensively tested on version 8 configs - I don't have a lot of examples.

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

Hi David, I have a config that generates some minor errros to do with those DM_INLINE style group objects if you're interested in tweaking that.

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

Thinking about this... it implies that the zones file hasn't been built properly.

 

In which case all I'd need to see would the the zones.txt output file,

and maybe the static routes & interfaces sections from the config file.

Re: PIX/ASA to Junos converter

The tool is a PERL script. To use it you need to have it on a machine that has perl installed on it.

 

Here is a small howto to get perl installed under Windows.

http://learn.perl.org/installing/windows.html

 

 

you also need some perl "plugins" which you can install by using cpan (part of perl)

 

cpan Getopt:Smiley Frustratedtd

cpan Scalar::Util

cpan NetAddr::IP

 

 

After this you can run "perl px2sx.pl"  in the path you have axctracted the px2sx.pl tool

 

 

 

 

 

Marc

Please Mark My Solution Accepted if it Helped, Kudos are Appreciated Too
