Packet-Tracer shows Status: Drop

Hello:

I have ASA 5510 and when I ran packet-tracer from dmz to outside and I noticed that on Phase 5 is show drop with this error "

(sp-security-failed) Slowpath security checks failed"

Could someone please one tell me if the NAT is sending traffic out or the setup is correct and what is that error means.

Thx,

HP

Packet-Tracer shows Status: Drop

Hi,

Please post the exact "packet-tracer" command used.

Please also post the whole "packet-tracer" command output

It might be likely that there is a problem with the actual format of your "packet-tracer" command

Re: Packet-Tracer shows Status: Drop

Hi,

To me it looks like you are simulating a situation where the server on the "dmz" connects to itself using the public IP address used in the "static" command?

This is probably the reason the "packet-tracer" fails.

If your goal is to simulate outbound Internet traffic then this command would do the trick

packet-tracer input dmz tcp 17.16.10.174 12345 8.8.8.8 80

Essentially the destination IP address can almost be anything. Anything that according to the ASAs routing table is located behind the "outside" interface. Naturally your server should not connect to itself through the firewall and not through the NAT IP address so this should not be used as a destination.

Hope this helps

Indeed that external ip is for a web site and I already configured static NAT on fwl so it should work correct?

access-list VoIP extended permit tcp any host 63.64.244.xxx eq https

static (dmz,outside) 63.64.244.xxx 172.16.10.174 netmask 255.255.255.255

Thx,

Hi,

The NAT configuration looks like any basic Static NAT configuration that binds the public NAT IP address to the local IP address.

The question at the moment would be where is the ACL named "VoIP" attached?

Are you trying to allow traffic to this host/server on the DMZ from the external network? If so then you should be allowing the traffic from the external network. In an ACL that is attached to your "outside" interface.

You can check where ACLs have been attached with the command

show run access-group

As I said, if you wanted to allow HTTPS to this host/server from the public/external network then this ACL rule should be using the ACL that is attached on the "outside" interface.

Furthermore, if you wanted to test connectivity TO this server from the public/external network then you could use this "packet-tracer" command

packet-tracer input outside tcp 8.8.8.8 12345 63.64.244.xxx 443
