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?


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

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

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

but that does not seem to work.

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.
