  1. Hi Rene,

    I dont know exactly what topic to place this question in thats why i am placing it here
    i got an opportunity for 3 days to work under a CCIE who was very rude and did not bother to ask him any questions as i knew he was not interested in explaining

  3. Hi Rene,

    I am still not clear with the ASA order of operation. I think its different before 8.3 and after 8.3 IOS. Can some one help me in understanding it? .

  4. Hello Ajith

    The order of operation depends on if the NAT involved is source NAT or destination NAT. Specifically:

    For ASA versions before AND after 8.3 with SOURCE NAT, the order of operation does NOT change. That is:

    1 ACL 2 Destination NAT 3 Routing

    For ASA versions AFTER 8.3 and DESTINATION NAT, the order of operation is as follows:

    1 Destination NAT/Partial routing* 2 ACL
