i'm new to the asa and i have a newly configured asa 5540 and i'm trying to ssh through it to an external router
routes etc are all ok
when i try an ssh i can see the outbound session built but the inbound reply is denied
i suspect this is because ssh is not included in the inspect rule for the inside interface
is this a possibility and if so how do i get round this
thanks to anyone taking the time to reply
ps - i have another post on the way re configuring dns through the same asa so i'm grateful to anyone taking the time to look at any of these posts
Are you sure the ASA is denying this traffic or the router? What are you seeing in the log (which makes you suspect that the ASA is denying this traffic?).
The setup is like this as per my understanding?
ASA-Outside (Ssh client) >> Router (SSH Server)
Also if the router is more than one hop away, make sure the router knows how to reach the ASA's outside itnerface.
