RPF-CHECK Failure

Hey gang, I'm trying to NAT a server to an outside interface on an ASA running 8.4. It isn't working and when I run packet tracer I see that I'm droping at the RPF-CHECK.

Phase: 5

Type: NAT

Subtype: rpf-check

Result: DROP

Config:

object network obj-192.168.1.254

nat (inside,outside) static 50.198.198.19

Additional Information:

Below is my nat config.

object network obj-192.168.1.254

nat (inside,outside) static 50.198.198.19

Can somebody point me in the right direction on this?


Thanks

RPF-CHECK Failure

Hi,

Probably something to do with overlapping NAT rules.

Could you share the whole "packet-tracer" command and its whole output

If that doesnt tell anything then might need to see the whole NAT configurations.

can you please confirm your packet-tracer command was like below?

packet-tracer input outside tcp 173.226.30.1 1500 50.198.198.19 443

Hi,

You didnt show the "packet-tracer" command you used.

It seems to me that you are using the command with wrong parameters since the connection specified by the "packet-tracer" didnt match any NAT rule at all.

You were probably using the real IP address of the host as the destination IP address.

This would explain why we see the RPF Fail. Since on the other direction it matches the NAT.

JouniForss,

I checked and you are correct, I was entering the packet tracer command wrong. I assumed that because the FW rules had changed to reflect the true destination, not a nat'ed address, that I should do the same for packet tracer. I appreciate you pointing that out.


Using the correct packet-tracer commands everything appears to work correctly. Unfortunatly only one of the two NAT'ed IPs responds. I'll do some digging and post relevant outputs in a different post when I get my head around the current issue.
