Cisco ASA Static PAT / Port forwarding / Port Redirection Problem

Unanswered Question

I currently have a situation, where I want to configure a static translation for a single outside IP going to multiple internal IP's, on a different tcp port for each. Normally I would be able to do this, I have done it in the past, but this situation has 1 difference, where the port that I am forwarding to on the internal IP side is different, I have a posted an example below. It is not working the way I would think, when I connect to the https page, of a DRAC card on a dell server, I get the security warnings and all, and accept, but when it trys to pull up the page, it times out. Is this something to do with my configuration on the ASA, or maybe something with the DRAC card itself, has anyone experienced this before? If i do not change the port, and use 443 on the outside and inside, it works fine, but I dont want the outside to see 443, but 5001, 5002 etc etc, going to different internal IP's, on 443.

static (DRAC,outside) tcp 216.x.x.x 5001 https netmask

Thanks for any help you can provide.

static (DRAC,outside) tcp 216.x.x.x 5002 https netmask

static (DRAC,outside) tcp 216.x.x.x 5003 https netmask

The above do not work, but I would like them to.

static (DRAC,outside) tcp 216.x.x.x https https netmask

This method works, but it does not meet my security needs, yes I do have the option of doing a different outside IP for each DRAC card, and then doing the 443 to 443, but it is again not meeting my security needs, and i do not want to use that many different outside IP addresses.

I had the same configuration as you and

it works for me:

static (DRAC,outside) tcp interface 5001 https netmask

static (DRAC,outside) tcp interface 5002 https netmask

static (DRAC,outside) tcp interface 5003 https netmask

The only exception is that I have a Redhat

Linux Apache Server serving https and I can

see the page without any issues.

Then again, I am using Pix version 7.0(7)

which is a stable version. You may want to

give version 7.0(7) a try.
