ASA 9.0(3) - host in DMZ to access internet

hi everyone,

I'm running into an odd situation with DMZ config on 9.0(3). I manage to get it to work with an ANY statement, but i hate that. 

So below is how my current traffic is

         INSIDE--------------------------> DMZ --------nat-------->OUTSIDE

        192.168.3.4/24                    192.168.1.55                      x.x.x.55

Right now 192.168.1.55 (DMZ) can reach both inside and outside perfectly fine. However, because i use an ANY statement, the host in DMZ is actually able to reach the entire INSIDE subnet. I don't want that. I just want it to be able to reach 192.168.3.4 only.

Below is my config (i remove lines that are unneccessary)

!

interface Port-channel1.102
 vlan 102
 nameif outside
 security-level 0
 ip address 66.111.20.252 255.255.255.0
!
!
interface Port-channel3.7
 vlan 7
 nameif dmz
 security-level 50

Hello oldstu12a4,The

Hello

The situation is that as you know the firewall needs an access-list to permit traffic that comes from a lower security level to a higher one. Once you create the inbound access list on the DMZ to permit the specific host on the inside if you don't permit traffic from the source to any you are going to lost connectivity to the internet.

The way to work this is to use the access-list to permit what you need and then deny what you don't using the hierarchical properties of the acl.

It goes something like this:

 nameif outside
 security-level 0
 ip address 66.111.20.252 255.255.255.0

 
 nameif dmz
 security-level 50
 ip address 192.168.1.251 255.255.255.0

 nameif inside
 security-level 100
 ip address 192.168.3.250 255.255.255.0


First you permit from DMZ to inside (lower to higher)

EX:

access-list dmz_access_in permit ip object Hieu-DMZ-Laptop object CORE-Management-VLAN2--->with this one you include what you need to allow.
access-list dmz_access_in deny ip any 192.168.3.0 255.255.255.0----> on this one you deny access to the inside network.
access-list dmz_access_in permit 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 any ----->With this one you permit access from the DMZ range to the internet.

****Please review this configuration and let me know if you have any question. Its very important that you feel comfortable and analyze the variables as this could block the access to host to needed resources if we are not careful.

Thank you Jose!

I actually create a rule pretty similar to what you stated.

Things are working really good now.

Thank you for your help
