How  do I allow or forward ssh connections to a specific device with the ASA. I have the the following setup. I know how to forward the incomming SSH traffic on the ISA but need help with the ASA. I would like to forward any SSH connections from the external ip 70.45.3.12 to the internal server 192.168.0.25. I need the ASA to get he traffic to the ISA and the ISA will forward to the server. Thanks in advance

From the command line:

Create the static NAT rule:
static (inside,outside) tcp 15.48.16.106 ssh 172.16.14.1 ssh netmask 255.255.255.255

Create an ACL to allow access:
access-list outside_access_in (you may need to check the name of the currently used ACL and use that instead - do a show run and see what access-group the outside interface is using) extended permit tcp host 70.45.3.12 (replace with "host x.x.x.x" with "any" if you want anyone to be able to access it) host 15.48.16.106 eq ssh

In summary:
static (inside,outside) tcp 15.48.16.106 ssh 172.16.14.1 ssh netmask 255.255.255.255
access-list outside_access_in extended permit tcp host 70.45.3.12 host 15.48.16.106 eq ssh

Also, if you wanted to direct all traffic to the 172.16.14.1 interface would I add this NAT rule instead? Just want to make sure I understand..

static (inside,outside) 15.48.16.106 172.16.14.1 netmask 255.255.255.255

Yes, that rule would NAT ALL traffic to that inside address, you would still need to set up access lists for that as well.

If you wanted another IP to be able to SSH in you have to add it to the ACL you already created, not create a new one.
