I would like some help please.

We have purchased a 5510 and I am new to this piece of equipment and need some help.

I have found a lot of information but they seem to mostly use the commend line and I am using the ASDM to configure my information.  I just want a connetion from the inside to outside using PAT and then allowing outside traffic in.

I know it shouldn't be that difficult but I don't have a lot of time to devote to configuring this equipment and there is no one else to do it.

I would appreciate any assistance that anyone could provide.

Hi Katie,

What version of software is currently loaded?  8.2, 8.3 etc?  From the CLI, do a "sho ver"

you'll see a line like this...Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 8.3(1)

Thank you

Here are the CLI commands.  Just substitue your inside network address scheme in place of

If you have already setup your outside and inside interfaces this should work:  If you have not setup those interfaces, that will need to be done first.

object network my-inside-network

nat (inside,outside) dynamic interface

Also, here are the links to the ASA config Guide for 8.3 for ASDM and CLI:

Note on the guides that jathaval posted:  Make sure that your versions line up.  8.0 vs 8.3 etc.  Things will be similar between guides but you want to be aware if you are working between guide version and OS/ASDM version.  Slight differences etc.
