Cisco Firewall :: ASA5505 - Outlook Access For Inside Hosts
Apr 25, 2011
I am using ASA 5505 firewall with base-license. I connected my firewall to one cisco 3750 switch where i created 5 vlans. I done NATing for all vlans and they able to get internet and working fine. They able to browse all internet sites like gmail and yahoo mail.
All internal users are configured to use Outlook for their webmail. Here the problem is with outlook they are unable to send and receive the mails.
If they directly connected their system using public ip( Directly from ISP) they able to send and receive mails from outlook.
The ASA5505 I am working with has this from the show version:
Licensed features for this platform:Maximum Physical Interfaces : 8VLANs : 3, DMZ Restricted Inside Hosts : 10Failover : Disabled VPN -DES : EnabledVPN-3DES-AES : Enabled VPN Peers : 10WebVPN Peers : 2Dual ISPs : Disabled VLAN Trunk Ports : 0 This platform has a Base license.
Does the Insides Hosts :10 line mean that only 10 devices can be connected to the firewall at one time? I would like to connect an AP to one of the PoE ports and have possibly more than 10 connected. Is this possible with this ASA5505?
I'm trying to make a very plain and simple network with the ASA 5505, I've strated from scratch over a dozen times triyng to find where I'm going wrong. My main goal is to simply create an IPSec VPN connection to my ASA 5505 and simply ping and connect to devices with the "inside network", so far I can easily create and establish a IPSec VPN Connection, but up to this point, I cannot successfully ping or access a single device on the ASA 5505 inside network.I've taken, create the IPSec profile with the ASDM wizard, add exemption for the VPN IP Pool, add access-list from this Cisco link, url...All this and I can't make a single connection to the inside network. [code]
Using an ASA5505, have 1 static outside address, want to access an inside SBS-Server on SMTP, RDP (3389), HTTPS and port 987
Have configured network object nat rules using the asdm, SMTP works (I can telnet to the server on port 25 from outside), however for some reason I can not telnet inside and out on port 25, so outgoing mail does not work. RDP does not seem to work from outside, 987 I havent tested from outside. When I try to create a network object nat rule for https I get this message from the ASA:
I have some users from another company who are visiting my company. The use outlook to access their mail. I think it is via RPC over https (ssl). When there are on my network they are unable to send messages but when the connect to an ISP directly they are able to send. I have a cisco 2821 as my internet router and an ASA5505 (8.0.5...i downgraded it from 8.2.3) as my firewall. I have not blocked anything from going out. Of note is that when other users use window live configured for gmail....which uses tls they are unable to send emails with atachements. Regular emails go though no problem. Hotmail can send atachments without a problem (there is no encrytion there). I have narrowed the issue down to how the firewall treats esmtp or tls traffic passing though it. I have already diabled inspect esmtp on the firewall.
I am trying to access and ping the inside interface of a ASA5505 from a remote network. From the remote network, I am able to access anything on the local network, but the ASA5505 inside interface.The 2 networks linked by a fiber link which have a transport network on another interface. From the remote network, I am able to ping the transport network interface IP, but I would like to be able to ping the inside interface IP. When I do a packet tracer, I get a deny from an implicit rule.How can I achieve that?
Here are the subnets involved and the ASA5505 config.
Remote network : 10.10.2.0/24 Local network : 10.10.1.0/24 Transport network : 10.10.99.0/24
I also want in internal NAT, but only for certain external hosts, so when they connect to any of the above, their source address is changed. I've attempted the following so an external host (172.16.2.254), has it's source changed to 172.16.1.100.
I'm just new with ASA. I'm just self-studying on it. I was tasked to have an ACL that will allow inside hosts to access a specific network. Is there a way on how to know all the inside hosts on the behind ASA so that I can do a "object-group network" on those inside hosts which I think it will look neat.
This is an issue I'm currently exploring with TAC, but I'd like a quick reality check. We have a pair of ASA 5510s in Active/Standby stateful failover mode. In some tests failing over from the active to the standby system breaks SSH connections from hosts on our Inside to hosts on our DMZs.
A specific example is our backup server on Inside which is connecting to our mail server in the DMZ2, and running ssh/rsync/scp for the backups. A running backup job fails with network timeout errors when I trigger the failover. Also, sometimes the mail server loses or hangs on its connection to our LDAP server in DMZ1, although sometimes this connection is fine (DMZ2 is more "inside" than DMZ1, and I assume the LDAP look ups are many short connections, vs the rsync backup being one long connection).
TAC has suggested that open SSH sesions will always fail when the ASAs failover. I believe this is true for management connections to the ASA, but I don't see why it should be the case for an SSH session through the ASA to a server in the DMZ. TAC has suggested that I open some connections to servers in the DMZ and test what happens, and I can do so this Wednesday morning during a maintenance window.But, in general, is this true? That is, given an SSH session from a workstation to a server, should a failover break it? If so, why?
That is, all our inside VLANs are routed by our core L2/3 switch to a VLAN that connects to the Primary and Secondary ASA's INSIDE ports. There are also seperate VLANS on the core for the ASA's DMZ1 and DMZ2 connections, which go to both ASAs and to any servers in these zones.
The description of the ASA Stateful failover [URL]says: "The state information passed to the standby unit includes these:
· The NAT translation table · The TCP connection states · The UDP connection states · The ARP table · The Layer 2 bridge table (when it runs in the transparent firewall mode) · The HTTP connection states (if HTTP replication is enabled) · The ISAKMP and IPSec SA table · The GTP PDP connection database
I'm not quite sure what the ISAKMP and IPSec SA tables do, but shouldn't an SSH connection through the ASA be just a TCP connection? "For us, SSH from Inside to hosts in the DMZ survives failover," or, "Yah, failover breaks all SSH sessions."
I have an ASA 5510 which i've configured for internet access.I can connect to the internet from the ASA box,I can ping public networks from the console of the ASA box,but cannot access public hosts from internal hosts connecting via the ASA box.Find my config below to know what i ahave omitted or committed.
I'm stuck at asa 5505 nat, port forwarding configuration Here is what i need:
host1: 192.168.1.1 service tcp/100 >>>>> public ip 126.96.36.199 service tcp/100 host2: 192.168.1.2 service tcp/200 >>>>> public ip 188.8.131.52 service tcp/200 host3: 192.168.1.3 service tcp/300 >>>>> public ip 184.108.40.206 service tcp/300
So people from remote just need to use 220.127.116.11 public ip to access all the ports on three different inside server.I can do this on my old ASA 5505 with 8.0(4). Looks like there're lots of change from 8.0 to 8.4.
At the end of the day I simply need to upgrade the license on my ASA 5505 v7.2.4 (upgrade will come later as part of a larger project) to allow for >10 Inside Hosts. From what I've read there seems to be a 50 license upgrade out there. Can this be purchased directly? From whom? Will it only affect the Inside Hosts number and not affect any other licenses, configurations, etc. Just being overly cautious since this is way outside of my normal realm. Below is the current activation-key information....
Result of the command: "show activation-key"
Serial Number: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Running Activation Key: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I've recently upgraded my old firewall from a PIX to an ASA5505 and have been trying to match up the configuration settings to no avail. I have is that I can't ping the new firewall on it's inside interface, despite having "icmp permit any inside" in the running config. Secondly, the server I have on there ("Sar") can't connect out to the internet.I've included the ASA's running config incase anybody can see if something stands out. I have a feeling it's either not letting anything onto the inside interface, or there is no nat going on. Lastly (and possibly relevant), the firewall is actually going at the end of a vlan, which is different to the firewall's inside vlan number. I don't know if this is actually the problem because the server can't connect out even if connected directly into the firewall.
I am very new to Cisco ASA and I am trying many days to implement the design below but still cannot get it done. The situation I am facing is
- a host (e.g. 192.168.5.10) under Inside interface can contact to outside without any problem. - however a host outside (e.g. in VLAN1 or outside this network) cannot contact host under Inside interface. I am using PING test and always get Request Time Out. [code]
I have the following config below on my ASA5505, where I want to be able to access remote computers who are VPN'd into the inside network, for support purposes.I want to be able to ping the VPN ip from the LAN, and be able to connect to these computers via the VPN ip. [code]
I have an issue accessing the inside network of my church from VPN. This only happens when I connect from my home network. I have no problem accessing inside network of my church if I'm connected from else where (my Clear Hotspot or someone else's house). Here is the hardware detail:
At the church, we are using Cisco ASA 5510 and we have so many VPN tunnels to different churches. At home, I 'm using Cisco ASA 5505. See that attached configuration for my home ASA5505.
Let me start by saying that I'm just starting to study for CCNA, so the ASA seems to be a bit above me yet. The ASA's we are using is for VPN to our corporate office and only allowing access to our Citrix environment, so no direct internet allowed. We have a person who works in the remote office who has need for a caption telephone that requires direct access to the internet. The phone only supports DHCP, and getting the ASA to do an ARP reservations is proving difficult. For now I wrote an access list to allow it's DHCP address out but it still isn't working. The access list I wrote is:
access-list 101 extended permit ip host xxx.xxx.xxx.124 any log access-list 101 extended permit ip any any access-group 101 out interface outside
When I do a show access-list I'm seeing that traffic is hitting the access list as the hit counter has increased. When I do a show conn I'm seeing one of the IP's that the phone should have access to, however the flags are: saA, so I'm assuming they are not getting a response. According to the manufacturer, only outbound connections are needed, no incoming ports required. All traffic is TCP.
I have Cisco ASA 5505 installed and use as default gateway. I go to Internet through the ASA5505 Here is my Problem.I can not ping from ASA prompt(ASA#) to my Laptop connected to the ASA, but i can ping the ASA inside interface from laptop i can not use ASDM and the VPN Tunnel is not working between the sie
ASA# ping 10.10.10.12 ??????????? 100% lost Laptop c C:/ping 10.10.10.1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is the Topology
INTERNET .<=========================>ASA<===============================> LAPTOP
I disabled window firewall on the Laptop , but no goof result.
I have ASA5505 configured with internal network as 192.168.15.0 and default gateway 192.168.15.1 From the inside network, i'm able to access internet and able to ping all website (enabled ping). and all internel network devices can ping each other. Except i cannot ping my gateway (ASA5505) 192.168.15.1. I'm continously seeing this message on the log, when i tried to ping.. How to fix this?
Denied ICMP type=8, code=0 from 192.168.15.xxx on interface inside
replace xxx with my network devices that try to ping the gateway..I dont want outsiders ping my gateway, i need ping for inside internal network only.
I have installed ASA5505 in the network. Port forwarding has been done for one of the server in our LAN. Public users are able to access the server successfully. I am trying to access from inside using the same Public server IP, but unable to access it. Can I have this feature in ASA5505(I think it is loopback configuration). If so, may I know the configuration detail?
DNS resolution works and I can surf the web without fail. But if I try to ping any external hosts (I can ping inside interface of ASA fine) from the LAN I get timeouts. I can ping anything from the ASA without fail.
I am able to reach VPN clients (Anyconnect) only from hosts directly connected to the ASA's inside interface subnet. However, hosts on other internal subnets (18.104.22.168 & 22.214.171.124) are unable to connect to clients on VPN. The ASA is running ver 8.4. [code]
I am able to connect to my Cisco ISR 891 via VPN with the Cisco VPN Client 5.0.07.0440, but once connected I cannot access hosts on the inside. If I ping a host on the inside by name, nothing resolves. If I ping by IP, I get a reply from the public IP of the router. [code]
I have configured the ASA in a very similar manner to how the PIX was set up but I'm having trouble with some hosts on the inside accessing the Internet. Any inside hosts which use DHCP work fine. Any inside hosts with a static IP (and configured on the ASA with a "static" rule) cannot access the Internet. For example, in the config below the server daviker-dialler cannot access the Internet. I've spent a few days working on this now and have started from scratch several times but I'm not getting anywhere. Apologies for all the X's everywhere, didn't like to post anything sensitive on the Internet.
I am using a three interface ASA config (Internet, DMZ, Inside). The DMZ and Inside networks are both RFC 1918 space however it is against our corporate policy to allow our DMZ IP space to be internally routable, therefore we must target routable IP's which NAT to the DMZ hosts . In my DMZ network there are two devices - a Web Server and a 802.11 Access Point.
The Web Server is hosting our corporate web site. When the clients accessing the internet via the Access Point try to access our corporate web site they are not able to. A DNS lookup of the A record 'www' returns the public IP address, which when targeted translates to the real RFC 1918 IP of the web server.
Is there a way to use destination NAT or another clever config so when a host targets a public IP which is being translated on a different interface right back into the same interface it originated from it would allow the traffic?
I have a normal setup of ASA5505 (without security license) connected behind an internet router. From the ASA5505 console I can ping the Internet. However, users behind the Firewall on the internal LAN, cannot ping the Internet even though NATing is configured. The users can ping the Inside interface of the Firewall so there is no internal reachability problem. In addition, I noticed that the NAT inside access list is not having any hit counts at all when users are trying to reach the internet.
When i replace the ASA5505 with a router with NAT overload configuration on it, the setup works normally and users are able to browse the internet.
The ASA5505 configuration is shown below.
