ASA - NAT rule problem

Hi Guys

I have a DMZ and a Clientnetwork in place, I require that my proxy servers in the DMZ be able to authenticate with my ldap server in the clietnnetwork.

I have created a NAT rule as follows

interface (clientNetwork) Ldap Server >> Interface (DMZ) Translated IP

I would expect that my proxy server would then be able to ping the translated IP but this is not hte case. Do I also need to create an access rule? or am I missing something?

Apologies if this question is a simple one but I am new to cisco asas and slowly getting by

Your help would be much appreciated

Kind Regards

ASA - NAT rule problem

Hi there

just to add it appears a ping request from the proxy server is being denied by the ACL on the asa.

I can see this from the syslog and thus suggests I need to enable or add something in the acl as well as the NAT rule?
