ASA 5505 w/ Verizon DSL

Hello all,

I'm pretty decent in the world of Cisco but I'm having trouble getting traffic to flow out with a ASA 5505 on Verizon DSL. I have a static IP with Verizon and I'm using their Westfall 7500 modem/router as a routed bridge into my network.

The data flow goes likes this: Westfall 7500 > Cisco Catalyst Switch > ASA 5505

The switch has a inside and outside VLAN. The router and the outside interface on the ASA reside in the outside VLAN, everything else is on the inside VLAN.

At this point I have a very basic configuration, I think the issue may reside in one of two areas:

1) The outside interface is set to the static IP that Verizon gave me

2) I'm routing the outside interface to the Verizon gateway, basically my static IP but it ends in .1 (route outside

Should I be routing the outside interface elsewhere? Are there any other issues that anyone can think of?

Just as a side note, all the speed/duplex settings seem to match, I've had trouble with that in the past...

Re: ASA 5505 w/ Verizon DSL


the route you mentioned looks good.

As you are pointing all the traffic coming on the ASA to go to it's next hop which is the internet router.

If you've got that upstream modem in bridge mode and configured the static on the outside interface of the ASA there should be no issue's for traffic reaching out to the internet.

Is your traffic outbound ? from LAN to the internet.

Can you ping internet from the ASA?

1. try to ping from the ASA

if you are able to reach that then half the work is done.

Now we need to see what's the issue with the ASA.

Can you share the configuration from the ASA5505 so that we can make sure it is configured fine to pass all the traffic out.
