NAT ISSUE ASA 5505 VERSION 9.1

Hi guys,

I have a firewall asa 5505 and behind it in the DMZ zone i have a windows server 2012 that is a load balancer with the ip 172.168.200.10 and two web servers that are responding to requests, server1 172.168.200.2 and server2 172.168.200.3

The problem i have is that i am able to access the public ip of my load balancer from any host on the internet and it works normally but i am unable to get server1 and server2 to reach the internet.

I am sure this is a Natting problem but i can't find the solution.

I am attaching the configuration and a drawing of the network

You could use an object-group

You could use an object-group to group those 3 servers together...so something like this:
object-group network WEBSERVERS-PRIVATEIP
  host 172.168.200.10
  host 172.168.200.2
  host 172.168.200.3
nat (DMZ,outside) source static WEBSERVERS-PRIVATEIP WEBSERVER-PUBLICIP

Have you run a packet tracer

Have you run a packet tracer on the ASA? If not please run the following command:

packet-tracer input DMZ tcp 172.168.200.10 12345 4.2.2.2 80 detail

and

packet-tracer input DMZ tcp 172.168.200.10 12345 4.2.2.2 443 detail

Could you also post the output of the object group INTERNET-TCP and INTERNET-UDP

Also please check the logs when connecting to the internet from the servers, do you see anything that might be out of place?

Load Balancer with the ip 172

Load Balancer with the ip 172.168.200.10 can access the internet since it has a static natting , the other two servers, server1 172.168.200.2 and server2 172.168.200.3 doesn't have a nat entry that's why they can't reach the internet. Basically what i want is to add a nat statement for those two servers also. If i use nat for the whole network 172.168.200.0/24 i am able to reach the internet from all servers but unable to get my load balancer work when i try to reach it using the public ip from outside.

You can see below the output for both 172.168.200.10 which has a static nat and works properly and below it the output for server1 172.168.200.2 which has not a nat statement and justifiably can't reach the internet.

Well, I would have though

Well, I would have though that you would be able to send outgoing traffic through the loadbalancer also.
But you could add a dynamic NAT for the 172.168 network.


network object 172_168_200_0
  subnet 172.168.200.0 255.255.255.0
  nat (DMZ,outside) dynamic interface

Thanks for your help

Thanks for your help MariusGunnerud i am able to access the internet from those servers too.

The problem now is that they access the internet from the public ip assigned on the outside interface and not the dedicated ip address assigned for the load balancer.

 

isn't it possible to also add those two servers in the static nat statement and receive the ip of the load balancer?
