ASA simple setup

I have problem pinging from inside interface to outside interface and also from outside interface to interface. I have included sh run and sh ver command with this email. I wanted to try this simple setup first.

Re: ASA simple setup

the asa doesn't let you ping a far side interface. you can only ping the asa interface that is closest to the source host of the ping.

the easiest way to configure ping *through* the firewall is to turn on icmp inspection:

policy-map global_policy

class inspection_default

inspect icmp
