Identifying Manual NAT in ASDM

Hi,

Well the first thing I notice in the picture is that the ASDM says in the middle "Network Object" NAT (No Rules)" which basically tells us that there are no Auto NAT / Network Object NAT configured.

We also know that there is only 2 different NAT Rule Types. Manual NAT and Auto NAT (Network Object NAT) and the ASDM already tells us there is no Auto NAT rules (above explanation) then we can conclude that what we are seeing is a Manual NAT rule.

Re: Identifying Manual NAT in ASDM

It is manual because the screenshot shows that there are no Network Object NAT rules. So the displayed NAT rule is of type #3 in the list below.

In ASA 8.3 or later there are 3 types of NAT rules you can add:

1. Manual NAT before Network-object NAT

2. Network-Object NAT (network-object NAT is also known as AutoNAT)

3. Manual NAT after Network-object NAT.

If you looked at the cli, it would have the keyword "after-auto" in the NAT rule.

Hi,

There is no picture in your post. Atleast yet.

As soon as you can attach it I can take a look at it though ASDM is not my strong point as I rarely use it but I'd imagine I can answer this.
