How do I Debug the config - add break points

Hi,

Is it possible to debug a ASA config?

For example, when you write a program in Java you can debug (add break points) at each command to see where the config is incorrect, is there such a way to do this on a ASA?

Not that I know of.

However, when you're entering a config via the CLI, the system will tell you if you use incorrect syntax, or have a glaringly obvious error.

It's enough to work through probably 70% of config issues.

Someone might know an off-line configuration parser, but I've never seen one.

Cheers

Ok, thanks.

Would you know in which order the command are  excuteded .i.e. ACL,NAT,VPN etc...

Hi,

Depends on the direction of traffic

If inside to outside then acl and then nat

Keeping above with VPN tunnel then inside acl , nat and then VPN acl

Is there anything else which is between "inside to outside then acl and then nat" ?

Does the VPN commands get excuteded just before the packet goes out the outside interface?

Thanks
