  1. Hi Rene

    As far as I know, by default, ASA will block all traffics from lower into higher area.
    In this example, I can’t ping from R1 to and but I can telnet to them.
    Why is it?

    If we dont create the access-list something like below:

    access-list inside-in extended permit ip any any
    access-list outside-in extended permit ip any any
    access-list dmz-in extended permit ip any any
    access-group inside-in in interface INSIDE
    access-group outside-in in interface OUTSIDE
    access-group dmz-in in interface DMZ

    I cant ping to them!

    Thank you!

  2. Hlw Rene,

    I am little bit confused about the two command when using NAT:

    nat(inside, outside)


    Appreciate your nice clarification as always :slight_smile:


  3. Hi Zaman,

    Here’s how it works:

    ASA1(config)# object network SERVER
    ASA1(config-network-object)# host
    ASA1(config-network-object)# nat (INSIDE,OUTSIDE) static

    This basically does two things:

    • When a packet enters the INSIDE and exits the OUTSIDE, and the source IP address is then we translate the source address to
    • When a packet enters the OUTSIDE and exits the INSIDE, and the destination IP address is then we translate the destination address to

    We use this so a server on the INS

  4. by default FW allow from Inside to DMZ, so that means I am from Inside network and I can RDP to my windows server in DMZ. it can be bad in some cases,
    and if I want to block RDP from Inside to DMZ I will need to configure and access list?

    Thank you

  5. Thanx again Laz!
    I will try this again tomorrow on Devnet rather than GNS3.
    Kind Regards
