Allowing ILX - A UDP broadcast application through ASA

Posted on 2007-10-09
Last Modified: 2013-11-16
I have  a migrated user subnet to a private IP block and left  the ILX Servers on the DMZ with Public IP address.  Previously, both were in the same subnet, the public.  ILX Classic 2 is a UDP broadcast application.

I can ping to and from the DMZ from the inside.

I would like help with allowing the users in the inside access to this  UDP  broadcast application.

I have created an ACL to permit any traffic from the DMZ ILX server to the inside.
What can I do to allow ILX classic to work.

    I don't think you'll ever get broadcasts through the ASA. The adaptive security algorithm cannot handle creating translations for broadcasts.
    You would have to put it into transparent mode and not routed mode.
