static ip from isp on an asa 5505

Unanswered Question


I have a asa 5505 when I set it up for dhcp from my ISP things are great. Now that I have a static IP it dose not work. I have tried creating a static route and I see that it is getting traffic to the DNS server I use but no data is transferred. The doc's are very confusing, I am by no means a network expert. I can not get past that when I enter the static ip information into for the interface (outside vlan2) there is nowhere to add the gateway. I strongly suspect a static route is needed. I have tried to create one still no luck. The documents that came with the router are for there asdm suite I chose inside for the interface then for the ip and netmask and my gateway value from my ISP gave me for the gateway.

Any help is appreciated.

I have this problem too.

Not entirely clear what your problem is but your static route should look like

route (outside)

where should be an IP address out of the same subnet as the outside interface of your ASA.


thank you for you replay

I entered this route I can ping any site on the outsdie but can not ping from the inside.

I am wondering if the router just dose not work I can find no reason why I have tryed every route configuration I can think if.

my isp ip is my gateway is mask

I enter (outside)

and I can not ping from inside to outside or even see anything on the outside network.

this should work right?
