We have a new 5506-X with following:
Our small office uses local isp with dynamic ip assigned to outside interface. Some dynamic ip service provides a constant url for access from internet.
I have now spent several hours using wizards for this simple setup. Anyconnect setup works well but have no idea how to get this internal web server published.
I would appreciate specific examples or config tips. I can provide the minor changes we have made to the factory config which set port 1 as outside dhcp client and bridges 7 ports as dhcp server for inside network.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The portal runs on a linux host on inside network. That does have a static IP. So somehow I need to route all browser requests from internet in the form https://some.ddns-service.com/ to https://internal.domain.com/ or https://192.168.1.15/ on inside. That host also does something that updates some.ddns-service.com to current ip issued by isp. That address changes randomly, specially if there is any power failure.
Salespeople use anyconnect to access all resources inside. So they are not affected by this.

Yes you can do a nat even if your firewall has only 1 DHCP IP. Just take in mind that if your server needs to be accessed from outside on port 443, you'll need to change anyconnect port.
Let's assume your server has IP 192.168.1.200 and need to be accessed on port tcp 443.
The Nat command will be:
object network SRV
nat (inside,outside) static interface service tcp 443 443
For changing anyconnect port, when you're in webvpn config, just do "port 8443" (any port you want, here it's just an example).
For anyconnect, you have 2 license by default and you can purchase others if needed or just go with standard ipsec vpn.
The config is standard and on client side you'll connect using dyndns fqdn.
To configure ssl vpn, take a look here:
For standard ipsec:
You can also configured ddns on your asa to update it:
I dropped all links because there are lot of commands. Follow the guides and if you have any issues, let us know.

Thank you for your help. After making the change, the server is still not responding from outside.
To make problem simple,
Here is the current config:

Obviously I am missing something. But not sure how to track inbound https requests.
I appreciate your help.

I guess I did not understand packet tracer well. When looking at real time log output, I see this for my lab/test outside IP of 192.168.29.31:
|4||Oct 15 2018||17:41:15||106023||192.168.29.31||63513||192.168.1.15||443||Deny tcp src outside:192.168.29.31/63513 dst inside_1:192.168.1.15/443 by access-group "outside-https" [0x0, 0x0]|
So although user enters https, is ASA getting it as port 63513 which is causing the access to be denied?

Progress! No response from web server but now the real time log shows
Teardown TCP connection 2002 for outside:192.168.29.31/64502 to inside_1:192.168.1.15/443 duration 0:00:30 bytes 0 SYN Timeout
SYN Timeout help says 30 seconds of three way handshake timed out. Does that mean web server is not responding? It does from inside. Do I need to have server admin check apache logs?
10-16-2018 03:23 PM
Wireshark shows the inside host (192.168.1.15) broadcasting ARP for original source IP (192.168.29.31 from outside interface) which never replies. So looks like the current config is stuck since inside web server should be replying to natted ip as source. Does that make sense?
10-17-2018 06:17 AM
Can you run a packet-tracer please first and then following the result, we will go with a packet capture.
Let's assume your public IP is 18.104.22.168
run the following command please:
packet-tracer input outside tcp 22.214.171.124 12345 126.96.36.199 443 detail
10-17-2018 01:27 PM - edited 10-17-2018 01:37 PM
Attaching the packet trace for following:
packet-tracer input outside tcp 192.168.29.222 443 192.168.29.34 443 detail
In my test setup, 192.168.29.0 is outside network with 192.168.29.34 is outside ip simulating isp assigned address.
Also attaching the current config in case needed.
Random source port (following) also creates flow
packet-tracer input outside tcp 192.168.29.222 11443 192.168.29.34 443 detail
Sorry, missed that you were asking 188.8.131.52 to be replaced by asa's outside address...
Thank you for your help.

192.168.1.15 can access internet - just installed tshark. But ping 184.108.40.206 from inside fails. Also on the ASA, I notice route to 192.168.29.31(outside) from interface group inside also fails. While wait, I will see if fixing that will make any difference.
Attaching the capture file (added .txt so it is accepted as attachment) until the browser shows error at source.
Packets show getting the request(tcp) but no http traffic established.

ASA2 is a backup we are testing config changes until the server can be published securely through ASA1.
192.168.1.15 <-> ASA2 <-> 192.168.29.0 <-> ASA1 <-> ISP
Thanks to your directions to diagnose the issue, I had the server admin show me network config on the server. Turns out when she moved the server, they added 192.168.1.15 to original IP address 192.168.29.15 on same adapter. We removed that and the SYN issue got resolved.
I accepted your earlier post since that should have been end of this week long saga. I am still concerned about opening this server to cloud. If you have any tips on hardening (apart from current limit on only 443 traffic), please let me know.
Thx again for your help and patience.
