Cisco ASA 5510 config issue 8.0(2) - No internet traffic


I'm trying to configure a Cisco ASA 5510 so the inside clients can access the web.

The setup is a ADSL2+ connection --> Cisco 877 in full bridge mode --> Cisco ASA 5510

I can ping the internal PC's, I can ping the Gateway IP but I cant ping the outside world or access the web.

Here is my config:

Hello joe90kane,

You don't have any ACL on the outside interface. As ICMP is a connectionless protocol, you need to allow the ICMP echo-reply traffic back through the firewall.

Try the following.
access-list OutsideIn extended permit icmp any any echo-reply
access-group OutsideIn in interface outside


Hold on. You can ping the inside and gateway from the firewall, yes? Can you pint the firewall from the inside? Can you ping the firewall from the gateway?
I don't know if Cisco have changed the default settings, but have you tried creating an ACL from the inside allowing you DNS servers to send DNS requests out, then allowing any inside host to access HTTP and HTTPS?

Thanks Guys, got it working - turned out to be the wrong Route and a loose connection on the 877 :-)

I now have a related issue.

I have 2 ASA's

ASA1 + 4mb least line (7 VPN's all connect back to head office)

subnets of sites are 192.168.1.*** / 2.*** / 3.*** / 4.*** / 5.***/ 6.*** / 7.***


ASA2 + 4mb ADSL2+ (Simply config above)


I use a squid proxy server on debian - If I change the Gateway on the proxy to the ASA2 all my sites cant access the web?

How can I enable traffic from ASA1 to ASA2 for all sites???

You need to setup routing on the gateway to route traffic to the sites via ASA1 and a default route via ASA2. Sounds like a new question though. ;-)
