Source NAT based on Destination from ASA

Unanswered Question

I have an ASA connected to an rfc1918 network via a cryptomap.

[inside: :]<--- cryptomap vpn ---->[ another ASA ]<--->

Now can ping (and get icmp echo replies) from, but when I try to ping from the ASA it'self, the syslog shows an error:

Deny IP spoof from ( to on interface outside.

So how do I apply an access list to the internal interface of the ASA that will allow me to "nat 0" it's own internal interface? Usually the access lists are set up so that packets coming *into* the interface can be nat exempted, but how do I do it if the packet originates from the ASA?

In iptables, I'd do something like:

/sbin/iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s  -d  -j SNAT --to-source

which says "if the source is and it's bound for, source nat it to

How do I do this with an ASA running PIXOS 8.x ?
