ASA 5510 - Failed to locate egress interface

having a bit of trouble setting up our 5510.  None of us have ever played with a firewall before.  We've got most of the basics covered.  I was able to get to the outside world to do a software update to the box, but my laptop that sits in the inside can't see the outside.  We only have the default access rules in place at the moment.  Our old ISA firewall rules don't really translate all that well to this new box.

ASA 5510 - Failed to locate egress interface

Hi Jeremy,

There can be a number of things, firstly I'd say check the following

1) Are you running nat-control (sh run nat-control)

2) Do you have any nats setup ( sh run nat, sh run global, sh run static)

3) Check your inside access-list if defined, if not ensure your inside security level is higher than your outside security level.

4) finaly try a packet-trace which should give you some cryptic output, but will help...

    packet-trace input inside icmp 8 0

(this will do a echo (type 8 code 0) request from interface named "inside" to and shows if its allowed or will be dropped, if the above doesnt help, post the output of this into the!

that's what it was.  Called tech support and they fixed it in about 10 min.

ASA 5510 - Failed to locate egress interface

Same problem - was using an old Pix 501, and am having trouble getting the ASA to send internal traffic to the outside. I originally thought it was the lack of a default gateway, but that seems to be configured (When I try to manually set one up, I get a message it is already there).

I'm using ADSM to configure, but logging into the console gives the following config:
