I guess you mean the ASDM version rather than the actual ASA software?

Sadly I dont use ASDM to configure ASA firewalls at all.

But to me it seems that the above just means that

  • The rule is related/attached to the "outside" interface
  • The rule permits traffic
  • The source address/network/subnet can be anything
  • The destination is
  • The protocol is TCP and the ports 443 (HTTPS)

On the CLI of the ASA you can use the following command to list all the ACL / Access List configurations

show run access-list

With the following command you can view what ACLs / Access Lists are connected to which interfaces on the ASA

show run access-group

Re: Access Rule in cisco ASA 5510 ver 6.2

Hi Sagar,

Your understanding is correct and it's commonly termed "inbound" traffic.
That is, traffic sourced from lower security arriving to a higher security level. The "outbound" traffic would just be the reverse

For the example given, it means that any traffic from outside (usually Internet traffic), with source TCP port 443/HTTPS, will be allowed to communicate to the object pool/alias that was defined.
