ACE tcp & udp inspection

Unanswered Question
Feb 13th, 2007


I want to create a security model where one vlan is more trusted than the other (Like Pix/ASA or a router with inspection enabled). However, when i want to create a TCP or UDP inspection i can only select between a limited number of protocols.

I've created 2 class maps :

class-map match-all TCP_INSPECT

2 match port tcp any

class-map match-all UDP_INSPECT

2 match port udp any

The combined them into a policy-map :

policy-map multi-match INSPECTION



However when i enter the policy-map\TCP_INSPECT i can only choose between : dns Configure dns inspection ftp Configure ftp inspection http Configure http inspection icmp Configure icmp inspection rtsp Configure rtsp inspection

However, i do have for example SMB traffic running from one vlan to the other. How can i inspect that traffic so i don't have to enter an extra access-list entry ?

I have this problem too.

The ACE module comes with limited amount of security features.

You will not have all the PIX or FWSM features on the ACE module.

This is mostly a loadbalancer with some security features.
