ASA 5510 running without issues for a while but we needed extra port so added a 4GE SSM.
Having installed the 4GE SSM we had some issues with the card not liking a connection to our switches and only working by plugging directly from the server into the firewall, not great as we wanted extra servers on the line in the future. So we upgraded the firmware and no are at an impasse.
We have upgraded to 8.0(4)3 and now we cannot get any traffic through the port, we can't even connect to an external DNS server. Running a packet trace I get an immediate error on the first step '(l2_acl) FP L2 rule drop', and it appears as though the outside connection is down.
I have some experience on setting up basic port forwarding and NAT for internet access, webservers, mail but this has thrown me. To be honest its a case of if it aint broke don't fix it so I need some expert help in resolving the problem.
