dmz unable to access the internet

Unanswered Question
Jul 2nd, 2010

I have DMZ interface with\24with the following config on the firewall:

nat (dmz) 2

global (outside) 2 <publicIP>

the dmz interface on the firewall is and it can ping all dmz servers, so routing is not the issue

and no access-group for the dmz interface.

yet dmz servers are unable to access the internet.

is there anything missing in this config?

when I run a capture I see the traffic hitting the dmz interface yet nothing coming back, ie:

158: 06:27:07.126000 > icmp: echo request
159: 06:27:12.625822 > icmp: echo request
160: 06:27:18.125771 > icmp: echo request
161: 06:27:23.625639 > icmp: echo request
162: 06:27:29.125573 > icmp: echo request

I have this problem too.

Looks good from my point.

Please check the security lvl of your interfaces.

Maybe you need to assign a higher security lvl to your DMZ interface

HTH (if so please rate )

If you are testing with ping, please make sure that icmp inspection has been turned on/enabled.

If you are using the default policy map on the ASA, the configuration will be as follows:

policy-map global_policy
class inspection_default

     inspect icmp

Hope that helps.

Have you enabled ICMP traffic on the outside interface of the firewall? If no, please try "icmp permit any outside". Also, which firewall you are using? Is it 5505? If it is 5505, you might have license limitations.
