ASA5505 Trunk Problem

Unanswered Question
Nov 9th, 2009

Hello togehther,

I have a probem here with my ASA 5505.

ASA5505 + Security Plus Licnese.

I want to use the ASA Firewall to secure my WLAN. All my AP will be connect to the ASA and the ASA with my Router.

To do that i need to configure a Trunk port as Uplink to the Router(3560)

I configured a Trunk Port on the Router and on the ASA.

But i can not ping the ASA or connect with the ASDM.

I looks like that the Router dont know her.

With a "Show Inter Status" i see that the Port is connected with auto 100 full but the is no communication possible.

Iam not a Network Specialist so i need some help from you who have more experiance than me.

I Added the Config from my ASA.

Thanks a LOT if somebody can help me with that.

interface Ethernet0/0

no nameif

security-level 100

no ip address


interface Ethernet0/0.1

description Subnet1

nameif vlan1

security-level 100

ip address 192.168.x.x


interface Ethernet0/0.2

description Subnet2

nameif vlan2

security-level 100

ip address 192.168.x.x

make sure you have you also have the vlans on the 3560 with ip address under SVI.

On 3560

setup trunk for vlan 1 & 4 on 3560 towards ASA.

int vlan 1

ip address 192.168.x.x


int vlan4

ip address 192.168.x.x

Hope that helps...

Thanks for your answer!!!

But when iam running the Firewall on Transparten i do not need IP Adresses or?

I mean just the Mgnt. Adress.

On my Switch with Layer 3 there is a Trunk of course.


interface GigabitEthernet0/15

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

And the Vlans are also configured.

Its still not working. I tried so many thing already. Maybe someone can give me an onther Idea to Fix that.

How did you produce the sub interface for your 5505 in your reply to the earlier issue. I understand that the 5505 will not allow creation of subinterfaces
