Cisco Firewall :: New ASA 5515X Generation Support PBR Or Not / ISPs Links Redundancy
Jun 9, 2013
I need to know if the cisco ASA next generation specially ASA 5515X support PBR or no ?how to implement it? Also if i have many internet connections and i need to dedicate 2 ISP’s ADSL internet lines to certain service (such as mail) if the 1st fail, so the 2nd line come up to make redundancy with it ----------- Is this available on cisco ASA next generation.
Does the ASA 5505 will allow the addition of a 2nd external link to its configuration? I know the device is capable of Redundant or Backup ISP Links, but that’s not what I need. I will have two different links for two different purposes. Currently we are using the ASA 5505 just for Internet access, so only the ISP link is connected, very basic configuration. We are planning a connection to a client’s global (MPLS) network and we need to be protected against any traffic coming from that network, ergo we need to use a firewall for connection to that external link.Now with the final configuration the Internet traffic must keep being routed to the ISP link, and some other traffic must be routed to the new external link. Can the ASA 5505 be configured for this scenario?
have main office of 70 people.Also I have 2 redundant ISP:One give me 20 mbit/s Other only 2 mbit/s and it is my backup ISP.
I have some resources in data center and I need a IPSec VPN to it and some other location. I suppose there will be up to 3-5 IPSec tunnels. I choose Cisco ISR 881-SEC-K9 with one wan port and 4 LAN switch. But know I’m looking for Cisco 891-K9. There is no security bundle for it. But in cisco.com this router is marked Cisco 891-K9 Security router. Does it support security features like VPNs, ZBF, IOS Firewall, NBAR and IP SLA for ISP redundancy? Also if my boss will choose chipper Cisco router 881-SEC-K9. Will I be able to organize 2 ISP redundancy on 4 LAN switch port inside VLAN interfaces because there is only one WAN port?
I am still working on the design of my big project and always that you think that every thing is solve, appears a details.We need to deploy a fiber links to some buildings that will have access switches connected to the Core. I have been reading about ethernet ring topologies and quite differents to the hierarchical model because of the using of Ressilent Ethernet Protocol instead of STP or RSTP.My question is which of the next to scheme will be the best?
1.- Deployment an ethernet fiber ring topology with REP? Consider that the edge Switch of this ring will be my Core and this one is connected to my distribution switches in a hierarchical topology. In this situation, Acces Switch 1-A is connected to Acces switch 1-B, Access Switch 1-B to 1-C and Switch 1-C to the Core. Feel fre to recomend me wich switches and considerations are the best. We conssider 1 Catalyst 6506 Chasis for the Core and catalyst c2960s-48-TDL for acces, maybe the 3750x series. Each Acces node in the ring topology will have a maximun of 50 end devices.
2.- Deployment a Fiber ring but not connecting each switch with the next. In this case we want to ensure redundancy to the core wih equal costs path, but because of the ring each switch won´t have equal length link to the core. In this situation, Acces Switch 1-A is not connected to Acces Switch 1-B is connected directly to the core but the fiber cable will take the route to Access Switch 1-B, to Acces Switch 1-C and finnally to The Core Switch. This apply to the other to Switches. Note now that Acces Switch 1-A will have a 281 Ft link to the core and a second 1612Ft. link to the core. Here comes the question this differents lenght will negative affect RPVSTP ? or It doesn´t matter? Can i setup an etherchannel/load balance in this situation?
I will be implementing a new firewall (cisco asa 5515x) on my existing 3750x (server switches) and my 2960s (user switches). What should I need to apply on my firewall and swtiches to make the implementation successfull. I will put my 3750x as my DMZ and my 2960s as my inside. The 3750x have multiple subnet and also the 2960s.which features and technologies i need to know on those 3 products. my 3750x and 2960s don't have any ACL defined and most common features are vlan, switchport, trunking, spanning-tree, stacking, vtp.how my asa knows that my 3750x/2960s have multiple vlans. my current connection right now on 3750x and 2960s is just through 6 ports i assigned as one trunk, below is my config [code]
my 2960s vlans are almost the same with my 3750x except vlan 160, 170, 192. but of course when i put this in asa, i have to segragate vlan for 3750x (192, 100, 110,160, 170) and 2960s (130, 150). for my 2960s connection to the asa and since this will have big bandwidth, i will use 3 ports on my asa (and trunk it) connecting to my 2960s and i will use 2 ports on my asa (and trunk it) connecting to my 3750x. the one internet ports and my one management ports on my asa will stay like that.
I have a strange issue which happened to me last weekend with two ASA 5515X on version 8.6(1)2. There was a planned power shutdown which only affected the primary firewall. Failover was configured and running successfully. The configuration was also saved after every change made. After power was shut and primary firewall went off the secondary took over like it should but unfortunately all configuration was gone. We immediately powered on the primary again but also this one lost the configuration.
While reconfiguring the firewall we ran into another problem. The devices won't pair although it was the correct configuration. After three times removing and adding the same failover configuration the devices accepted the failover and worked together again.
I went through the bug toolkit and white papers regarding ASA 5515x and this particular version but were not able to find anything.
I am in a process of replacing the Cisco ASA 5510 with 7.3 OS with a new Cisco ASA 5515X with 8.6OS. In the existing Cisco ASA 5510, we have configured 'no nat-control' for which the traffic from all sub-interfaces were flowing to the lower security interfaces without any NAT command. Just access-lists were configured. Now how do i acheive the same in the Cisco ASA 5515X with 8.6? I do not find any 'no nat-control' command available for it.
I'm using ASA 5515X my concern is I was not able to block the traffic of P2P such as BitTorrent etc. I was also view some technotes on how to use webfilter without using Websense or Smartfilter tools and lucky I'm able to block certain websites. how to block the traffic of P2P?
I have ASA 5515x and it has already Internet Connection since my firewall is not "production". So right now I'm trying to configure a Remote Session just for a test and eventually I was not able to connect from it. I followed the instructions from technotes but still Remote Connection dropped. Here's my sample configuration on my firewall, btw I also configured a service policy rule and ACL just to make sure if I can able to access the Server inside my network but Session also dropped.
I have a misanderstand about management interface configuration in cluster. So I have a cluster asa 5515X with management interface. i Would like to be able to connect to any of the member of my cluster on management interface, so i would like to fix a different ip on management interface on each of my node ip 92 and 91. I think it is the only way to make asa firmware update to access local flash on each node.

I have a FWSM cluster that I exceeded the maximum number of static nat entries on. i migrated the connectivity off to a pair of PIX 535's that seem to be handling the adderess translation needs. however the number of NAT entries being required is increasing and being the PIX series wal EOL'd several years back..I need to replace them.. The static 1-1 nat entries cannot be summarized into network as the hosts that are being nat'd are scattered all over various micro subnets in the all 3 rfc1918 ipv4 address ranges and they are being manged directly by snmp and SNMP-trap and other services that prohibit the use of many-to-one nat. Is there a mknown maximum number of static 1-1 nat entries that can be defined on the ASA 5515-x, 5525=x and higher ASA firewalls? Say I wanted to be able to grow to 2500 or more static 1-1 nat entries. I am currently running 2010 1-1 static host nats currently.
Currently we have a T1 for data connected to a 1721 Router that is connected to an ASA 5510. We would like to add a FIOS line for dedicated online backup. Is it possible to connect the FIOS router to the ASA and route the IP from our backup server to use the FIOS line and everyone else continue to use the T1?
Looking to replace an "all-in-one" type firewall (UTM/Firewall, SSL VPN) with a cisco product - the issue i'm running into is that we have multiple ISPs plus WAN and DMZ - overall more than 5 ports on mid-range ASA devices - and from what i read, adding 4-port module precludes me from adding CSC module.
Is there an solution to that other than going for 5585-x model? (kind of over our budget, granted we need 2 for failover)
I have ASA5510 with PLUSE License.I have 2 Inside interfaces as STAFF and MAIL and two Outside interface OUT_STAFF and OUT_MAIL which is in separate ISP's.now i want to nat STAFF to OUT_STAFF and MAIL to OUT_MAILbecause I'm having two default routes it gets impossible to do.
I have a Cisco ASA 5510 and I am trying to set it up to be able to have it failover to the 2nd ISP connection if the 1st one ever went down. I think I need a nat statement that the "backup" connection will use when the 1st connection goes down, but I am unsure what the nat statement is supposed to be. I have added the commands that I am pretty sure that I need to add for the "backup" ISP connection. Attached are those commands, the interfaces that are set up, and the objects that are set up in the ASA.
I inherited a network redesign project mid implementation and ran across an issue that I was not 100% sure able to be resolved. Implementation is occurring in which the organization is changing over to a different ISP and we have some customers that will not be able to change their settings over to our new addresses from some time. I have seen a lot of posts about fail over and dual ISP configurations, but I could not relate them to this particular scenario.
have a PIC 515e connected to two ISPs via 2 interfaces. ISP1 is a 3.5Mbps aDSL line, and ISP2 is a 30Mbps business cable. I've confirmed the speeds by connecting the cabled directly into a laptop and using wget to download very large files from known-fast sites.
For admin reasons, I need to access two specific subnets using the slower ISP1. The rest of internet traffic should go to the much faster ISP2.
So I configure ISP2 as the default gateway, static routes for the two subnets to ISP1, set up NAT (PAT) and it all works like a charm. I've confirmed that ISP1 is used for only the two subnets, and ISP2 for everything else. CAPTUREs on the pix also confirm this. So far, it all works great.
But for reasons I don't understand, my max. download speed is 3.5 Mbps (the slow DSL). Using various speed tests and wget, I simply cannot get a download speed faster than my 3.5 Mbps DSL line.
Here is my config: interface ethernet0 100full interface ethernet1 100full interface ethernet2 100full [Code]....
What we are trying to accomplish here use two ISP's (one cable and one T1), use the Cable line for site-to-site VPN and use T1 line for all internet traffic. We currently use the following configuration: Cisco 2820 routers terminating the T1 -> HP switch -> Cisco AS 5510 port 0 -> port 1 to LAN switch (Nortel 5510)We want to force all VPN traffic (using 10.0.0.0/24 subnets - 10.0.1.0, 10.0.2.0, etc) through a cable connection, perhaps on port 2 of the ASA, then all non VPN traffic goes to the T1.
I have an ASA 5505 current f/w & the security plus license (to get the 3 nameif interfaces). Can I split traffic between two ISPs, (VPN traffic to one destination on a T-1 on one VLAN, and all other traffic using DSL to another VLAN) and using a different nat policy on both? I know load balacing isn't supported, only failover. I was just wondering if there was a way to make this work.
I am in the process of configuring a ASA 5510 to replace an older PIX. This change is part of migrating to a new ISP, so the process is complicated by the existence of two outside interfaces. I have virtually everything working, but there is a requirement to be able to access hosts from the internal networks using both their private IPs and their public IPs. The older PIX took care of this silently with little configuration, but the ASA has me twisted on the details. Some of the hosts with public IPs are on the internal network and some are on a DMZ (not my design, inherited). For the internal ones I implemented hairpinning to take care of the requirement, but I am having trouble with the DMZ based hosts.. Since there are two external interfaces each internal host has two IPs and two static NAT rules to handle incoming traffic from each external interface.
The routins and dynamic NAT entries we have in place take care of accessing the hosts using their private IPs on the DMZ, but I cannot figure out how to get the public IPs to work from the internal network. It seems like a simple Static D-Nat shoudl do it, but when I add a Static D-Nat on the DMZ the public IP works, but the private IP breaks.. Is there a way to get them both to operate ?
Network layout looks like this (IP ranges altered):
DMZ 188.8.131.52.0 Class C INTERNAL 10.0.0.0 Class C Outside 184.108.40.206 Class C Outside2 220.127.116.11 Class C
After applying it I could access the public IP (18.104.22.168) from the internal network, but I could no longer access the DMZ IP (22.214.171.124) from the internal network. Is there any way to get this configuration to allow access to both IPs from the internal network ?
The problem here is that there are website links based on the public IP and the DNS is split so DNS returns the internal IP to users. As a result both need to be accessible from the internal network.. Not my favorite design, but the client (or in this case the boss) is always right so I need to get it working somehow.
Looking to have an ASA5510 with two internet feeds. Moreover, I would like to have my static nat translations continue to work on the backup feed. I have outbound nat working, however I cannot get the inbound nat to work. I had this all figured out in 7.x but now with 8.x I cannot seem to get it working. If anyone has a 8.x example config.
I am setting up an ASA550 ver 7.2(3) - does this need upgrading?I have my ISP interfaces setup as primary and backup I have a static route pointing out:route primary 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 126.96.36.199 1 Question:Do I put the next static route to be route secondary 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 188.8.131.52 254 Will this set a high metric on the secondary route that will only take effect if the primary route is down? I assume I will need to have 2 sets of NAT rules to accommodate the dual ISP's
