connectivity Issue between ASA 5520 firewall and Cisco Call Manager

Recently i have installed ASA 5520 firewall, Below is the detail for my network

ASA 5520 inside ip:

Cisco Switch 3560 IP: for Data and for Voice

Cisco Call Manager 3825 IP:

The users and the IP phone are getting IP from the DHCP server which configured on cisco 3560 Switch.

the Default Gateway for Data user is and

for the voice users is


now the problem is that the users is not able to ping call manager. please if somebody can help in this regard. i will appreciate the prompt response against this issues.

Do you need to firewall

Do you need to firewall between the data and voice vlans ?

The simplest thing would be to make the default gateway for the data vlan the L3 switch SVI and not the ASA. Then you use a separate IP subnet to connect the L3 switch to the ASA and route between them.

If you do need to firewall between the data and voice vlans then obviously traffic needs to go in and come back out of the ASA inside interface so you would need to set that up correctly.

So if you want to firewall between the vlans can you post your ASA config ?

Actually i don't wana to insert new subnet and complicate the nework. i need a simple way to solve the problem

Actually the simple solution is to route both vlans off the L3 switch as that is what L3 switches are for. So traffic only goes to the ASA for internet and VPN access.

It would however mean readdressing the L3 switch to ASA inside interface and adding some routes to the ASA for the internal vlans.

So if you want to do it via the ASA then i'll have a look at the config but firstly you need to add this to your ASA -

same-secuirty-traffic permit intra-interface 

you may also need NAT statments but can you add the above and retry.

The other issue you have with

The other issue you have with your current setup is traffic flow ie.

a data client sends it's traffic to the ASA to get to the call manager. The default gateway of the call manager is the L3 switch. When the return traffic gets to the L3 switch it then goes direct to the client because you have a L3 SVI for the data vlan on the L3 switch.

So traffic does not go back via the ASA which may create issues with state on the firewall although it may still work.

The way to solve this would be to remove the L3 SVI for the data vlan off the L3 switch but then you would need to add a route to the L3 switch for the data vlan via the ASA.

So either way you need to add a bit of configuration.

Sorry for delay, see i change

Sorry for delay, see i change my gateway from asa to l3 switch but still i am not able to ping the call manger

Please give me advise if i configure a sub interface on ASA firewall the problem will be soled or not. please suggest
