accessing the edge router that is behind the ASA using an inside address

Unanswered Question
Apr 19th, 2010

I have a router that is in front of our firewall (ASA5510) that I'd like to manage using an inside address. Is that possible?

Internet<--->router<--->ASA5510<--->Inside

router Interface facing the firewall has an ip address of 208.x.x.254

The firewall outside address is 208.x.x.253

The inside address that I'd like to use is 10.1.1.1

So, when an inside user wants to telnet to the router, he will use 10.1.1.1

i tried static (inside,outside) 208.x.x.254 10.1.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.255

but that does not seem to work.

I have this problem too.

I would recommend modifying access to the edge router to use SSH as Telnet sends passwords in clear text.  Next create an ACL on the router so it can only be accessed for management via specific IP addresses associated with the ASA device.
