Hairpinning Port Redirects on ASA 5510

Unanswered Question

I have an urgent configuration issue. I have port 80 open and forwarded through my firewall which works great from the outside but does not work from within the network.

Have tried the same-security-traffic permit intra-interface command and everything else I could find online but still get nothing from inside the network.

I really need this to work from the inside for mail etc.

Any Help would be greatly appreciated!

here is my config:

I tried that already, no luck.

Actually it turns out after much research that this is impossible on software version 7.0.8, it was first allowed in version 7.2

Could you please attach a topology. Is the server in a remote INSIDE LAN?

  • Cisco Employee,

U-Turn translation is not a very good idea. Pls. remove this static

static (management,management) tcp interface www www netmask 

Pls. try to access the inside server using only its inside ip address

does work from the inside computers right?

The inside computers in 10.10.3/24 network should be able to access other server in the same network

and that traffic should not even come to the firewall.

This is a unique environment where using external addresses is necessary.

This is a very standard setup, one inside interface and one external.

I will be doing an upgrade from 7.0.8 to 7.2 tommorrow to see if that fixes the problem

Any one else solve this issue by upgrading?

Yes, the command was added only for encrypted traffic in 7.0 as you can read here:

Relese Note 7.0

Release Note 7.2

Intra-Interface Communication for Clear Traffic

You can now allow any traffic to enter and exit the same interface, and not just VPN traffic.


The intra-interface keyword now allows all traffic to enter and exit the same interface, and not just IPSec traffic.

You need to upgrade past 7.2.1 to be able to use same security command for clear traffic.

Jared -

I also had to perform DNS doctoring/rewrite because of the enforcing of HTTP Headers on our IIS server.  You may need that as well.  The problem for me was that internal users couldn't browse our website using DNS without the rewrite, and they couldn't use the private internal IP of the website due to the header requirement.  Using hairpinning with DNS doctoring worked for me.
