Using Outside interface to connect to multiple machines inside

I have been working on a configuration for single IP address (on outside ) of ASA5505

I am trying to utilize the outside address 192.168.0.249 to PAT/NAPT to 10 inside machines

192.168.0.204:2180 ->192.168.111.10:21379

192.168.0.204:2181 ->192.168.111.11:21379

192.168.0.204:2182 ->192.168.111.12:21379

192.168.0.204:2183 ->192.168.111.13:21379

192.168.0.204:2184 ->192.168.111.14:21379

192.168.0.204:2185 ->192.168.111.15:21379

192.168.0.204:2186 ->192.168.111.16:21379

192.168.0.204:2187 ->192.168.111.17:21379

192.168.0.204:2188 ->192.168.111.18:21379

192.168.0.204:2189 ->192.168.111.19:21379

192.168.0.204:2190 ->192.168.111.20:21379

I have createdd acces-list

access-list outside_access_in extended permit tcp any host 192.168.111.10 eq 21380

access-list outside_access_in extended permit tcp any host 192.168.111.11 eq 21381

nat (inside,outside) static interface service tcp 21390 21379

What I am not sure of (actually that could be considered all encompassing) is the mapped services/real services

Any constructive comments assistance?

Using Outside interface to connect to multiple machines inside

Hello,

Your configuration is close, but you should swap the real and mapped ports. For example:

object network ispec10

   nat (inside,outside) static interface service tcp 21379 21380

You can confirm this with the packet-tracer output:

packet-tracer in outside tcp 1.2.3.4 12345 192.168.0.204 21380

When you run that command, you should see that the IP of the server is untranslated from 192.168.0.204:21380 to 192.168.111.10:21379

Hope that helps.

I'm not sure why your reply states as such. The script above will work. I built out an environment (which is now production), which is exactly what your asking. If you look at the 'sh xlate' output above, it clearly show PAT from a single outside IP to 4 internal IP's. What I posted is indeed your solution. Thanks.

Thanks for the response. That reaffirms my later findings

I made those changes and tested with packet-trace.  It was just late to repost to supportforum

Sorry for my lack of followup 

Thanks Once again

Hi-

What exactly are you trying to accomplish with this solution. I'm assuming your trying to load balance here. Please see the script below, as should solve your problem. Also below that you will find the 'sh xlate' output from my test unit. I only did 4 hosts, so you will have to do the rest, but let me know how this works out. Thanks.

!---start

!

!-below is the ACL bound to the outside 'public' interface

access-list outside-to-inside extended permit tcp any host 192.168.0.204 eq 2180

access-list outside-to-inside extended permit tcp any host 192.168.0.204 eq 2181

access-list outside-to-inside extended permit tcp any host 192.168.0.204 eq 2182

access-list outside-to-inside extended permit tcp any host 192.168.0.204 eq 2183

!

!-ACL that will be referenced by the static PAT statements

access-list pat-acl-1a extended permit tcp host 192.168.111.10 eq 21379 any

access-list pat-acl-1b extended permit tcp host 192.168.111.11 eq 21379 any

access-list pat-acl-1c extended permit tcp host 192.168.111.12 eq 21379 any

access-list pat-acl-1d extended permit tcp host 192.168.111.13 eq 21379 any

!

!-below are the static PAT statements referencing the above ACL

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 2180 access-list pat-acl-1a

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 2181 access-list pat-acl-1b

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 2182 access-list pat-acl-1c

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 2183 access-list pat-acl-1d

Jean

It was not load balancing.

Customer has 11 internal machine that they collect data from and restricts me to one external address.

They use the OPC standard (DCOM) for communication.

There is a OPC tunnel deployed to transit the firewall (uses port 21379 on internal machines)

The requirement is to use only one external IP address (outside interface) to inside machines .
