cisco asa default inspection

Unanswered Question
Aug 19th, 2010

Hi all

Can anyone tell me by default  what traffic does the default inspection policy inspect? Am I right in saying the class matches all traffic, however the engine does not inspect everything by default, i.e no ftp, pptp ,sip etc.

why are these turned off by default? for example, I could not get a pptp connection working through the firewall until I made it inspect pptp traffic, why did turning it on fix the issue?



I have this problem too.

Please find the following URL that tells you which inspection is on by default (the ones in bold):

and PPTP inspection is not on by default.

Here is what PPTP inspection actually does:

Hope that helps.
