I'm using ASDM v6.4 to configure an ASA5520 runing 8.2(5). Trying to set up PAT using the Public Servers screen in ASDM, but there is no place for public and private service to be specified. I only see a field for service. Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance.
Not the best person to advice on the ASDM side as I use 99% CLI on the ASA
But quickly checking the ASDM side on one of my ASAs seems to me that the section you are referring to should give the option to configure
You can also go to the following window on the ASDM
Configuration -> Firewall -> NAT Rules -> Click on the Add button -> Choose the rule type you want to configure
Thank you Jouni... but the documentation says there should be a field of Private Service and field for Public Service in the Add Public Server dialog, thereby fascilitating the PAT... but my dialog looks exactly like the one you show.
I guess I can go into the NAT Rules and modify the static NAT rules that are created as a result of the Public Servers creation.
I think I have might have read the post wrong / Understood you wrong
Are you trying to configure Port Forward / Static PAT for your server using the public IP address of your "outside" interface?
Then you should go to the section
Configuration -> Firewall -> NAT Rules -> Add Button -> Add Static NAT Rule
It will enable you to configure the Static PAT which lets you configure the Real and Mapped port
Thanks again Jouni. I think you understood me just fine the first time.
I am trying to confgiure a port forward from outside to inside, but the outside IP is not that of my outside interface, but one that lies in the same subnet as the outside interface.
I think I can use the Add Static NAT Rule dialog to accomplish what I need. It's just frustrating that the Cisco documentation doesn't jive with the gui. Click the Help button on the Public Servers dialog and you'll see what I mean.
One reason why I only use CLI for the NAT and ACL and any other configurations I can is the reason that I can see everything with one command if needs be.
With ASDM you are jumping through multiple windows and are not quite sure what you have accomplished
Basic configuration format for Static PAT (Port Forward) for example is
Unless I remember wrong. I have already pretty much moved to the new 8.3+ NAT format on most of the devices I configure.
