All,


From my test, I think the answer is no but I wanted to get clarification. In the below config, I'm wondering if I need to assign an access-list in the dmz in order to allow return traffic back out from the dmz to the initiating connection on the public side.



static (dmz,outside) 5.5.5.5 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.255


access-list outside permit tcp any host 5.5.5.5 eq 80


access-list dmz permit tcp host 192.168.1.5 any eq 25


access-group outside in interface outside

access-group dmz in interface dmz



The only thing that I'm allowing from the outside is web traffic. The only thing that I'm allowing from the dmz is smtp traffic out. If a host connects from the outside to 5.5.5.5 on port 80, will I need an entry permitting the return traffic on the dmz acl, or will it allow the traffic back out automatically?


access-list dmz permit tcp host 192.168.1.1 any eq 80


Thanks,

John

Hi John,


You won't need to explicitly allow reply traffic in an ACL as the ASA is stateful.
