I was given a block of IP's [six usable]and wanted to test out RDP. I added these commands to our ASA 5510 FW:

access-list inbound extended permit tcp any host 72.164.1xx.xx eq 3389

static (inside,outside) 72.164.1xx.xx netmask

What happens is that not only can't I connect to the with RDP, I can't browse out to the internet from the IP. Am I missing a command?

Paul, could you post asa config. For your inside hosts to go out internet you need couple of statement in your firewall.


nat (inside) 1

global (outside) 1 interface

this should allow your inside get outbound access to internet.

as for your new IP block, make sure RDP is enable on the machine and that no firewall is neither enable if it is an XP machine.

access list should be something like this:


your static NAT is ok.

access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host 72.164.x.x eq 3389

access-group outside_access_in in interface outside
