I'm setting up a ASA 5510 that is sitting behind a second ASA 5510.
The setup is T1 -- modem-- ASA1 --- switch -- ASA2 -- switch.
ASA1 outside interface is connected to internet and is working correctly. The inside of ASA is connected to a switch and all the workstations are patched into that switch and are working properly.
I trying to setup ASA2 to alllow me to get out onto the internet and also to allow me to NAT the servers that are attached to the switch behind it.  At the moment I'm trying to ping the inside interface of ASA1 with ASA2 and I get "no route to host" error. The inside od ASA1 is The outside of ASA2 is What commands do I need to add to the config to make it work?

    >The inside od ASA1 is The outside of ASA2 is
    I would expect that the inside of ASA1 and the outside of ASA2 would be in the same IP subnet, like:
    Asa1 inside IP
    Asa2 outside IP
    ASA2 inside IP

    Then on ASA2
    route outside

    Why are you using a firewall behind a firewall to create a server Zone when you have that capability right in one ASA?
