Blocking outbound smtp broke rdp!?

Unanswered Question
Oct 27th, 2008

Hi, I added config to block outbound 25 except from exchange server to keep infected users from spewing, but then had users connected via VPN (Cisco client) lose ability to connect to terminal server. Removing the "access-group OUTBOUND in int inside" resolved the rdp problem.

I have this problem too.

My first suggestion would be to exclude the VPN IP address pool from the acl, but then you have decided to use IP addresses from the inside.

To be honest - I see no reason why the acl would break, so I would change the IP addresses the remote users get assigned to say and then re-test the acl and see what happens.
