Internet ---- FWSM (ver 3.2(8)) ---Serverfarm
we have a server which has an application that listens on port 55005.The way the appliction is accessed is by http://public-ip:55005. I have opened port 55005 on the fwsm and the static and access-lists are as follows
static (dmzSERVER,OUTSIDE) public-ip private-ip netmask 255.255.255.255
access-list FR_OUTSIDE extended permit tcp any host public-ip eq 55005
access-group FR_OUTSIDE in int OUTSIDE
The issue is that i get the login page.As soon as enter the username and password and hit enter it says page cannot be displayed. On logging the FWSM i cannot find anything being dropped.
I also tried application inspection for http using the following configuration.
match port tcp eq 55005
service-policy HTTP interface OUTSIDE
Now when the outside user tries http://public-ip:55005 i can see that there are hits for the above inspection and that nothing is dropped.But still after supplying the username and password we still get page cannot be displayed. I havent tried with an HTTp map though.
I believe this has got something to do with http traffic going on port 55005. locally everything works OK.
if any one has some ideas regarding this please help
