Video feed through ASA

I have a setup using an ASA 5510 8.2(2). In the DMZ (192.168.12.x) there is a server, switch and multiple cameras for surveillance of the site. In the Inside (140.152.25.x) are the pcs that can run the client software to view the video feed, or it can pull from the server in the DMZ.

On the server in the DMZ, you can see the feed, along with any pc you connect to that network.

On any machine on the Inside, or through VPN, you cannot either with the client software or pulling from the surveillance server.

I am watching the connection through ASDM and don’t see any particular port being blocked, but I do see TCP connections being terminated by inspection. So far I’ve taken out inspections for http and rstp. I don’t really see anything else that would drop video. I've attached the error I keep seeing.

Anyone have experience with something similar?

Video feed through ASA

I wonder if this is a NAT issue similar to what I am asking about here:

Scenario seems similar in the sense that we both have services on different interfaces that we are trying to access.

Actually, I take that back.  I'm no expert, but in looking at your screenshot, I wonder if there is a policy in place that is blocking private addresses (192.168.x.x in this case) from traversing the outside interface.

An address like that will be dropped at my outside interface.

yes I have.  And I've removed all inspect commands, same issue.

Have you tried with :

inspect h323 h225

inspect h323 ras

Can you post " sh service-policy inspect http " ?

Also is "inside_access_out" supposed to be in applied in the "in" direction of the inside interface ?

sh service-policy inspect http

Global policy:
  Service-policy: global_policy
    Class-map: inspection_default
      Inspect: http, packet 1510005, drop 0, reset-drop 0

I'm new to this ASA, I've questioned that access list myself, but am not positive why it has been set up the way it has.  I've been on the phone with TAC, so far they have not been able to come up with an answer, but still working on it.

Re: Video feed through ASA

Just an FYI the problem was that there is a CSC module on the ASA.  In the config was the command "csc fail-open" under a global-glass.  This was allowing the return traffic to come back un-inspected, which prompted the "TCP closed by inspection" error.

Once the "csc fail-open" command was removed, cameras worked.  I just set up an access-list to block the security traffic from reaching the CSC module.
