ASA 5545 ACL Question

Level 1
Level 1

Do the ASA 5545 Firewall ACLs affected locally generated traffic?  Lets I use one of the interfaces of the ASA 5545 (not the managemet interface) to report syslog information or snmp information.  If i created a ACL to block snmp/syslog traffic from the ip address of the firewall to the destination, will this actually get blocked?  I know in routers that an ACL does not affect locally generated traffic, however, I am having trouble finding documentation to support the same thing in the ASA 5545.  Does anyone have any insight on that?

Same here, The ASA-ACLs don't filter ASA-originated traffic.

Thanks, thats what I thought, but I wasn't able to find that in any documentation.

I also just tried to find it without any success. It's documented in the official ASA-trainings, but I'm pretty sure that I've also seen it documented in the configuration-guide ...

Well thanks for the quick reply!
