ASA 5505 Nat Exemption

I have configured a Cisco ASA 5505 to sit between our network and a vendor network. We do not want NAT running between the two. The vendor controls the router attached to VLAN12 on the ASA.

I do not get ping replies from the vendors router. I suspect they don't have a route configured pointing to the ASA for my internal subnet but they insist the problem is on my end.

If the problem is on my end then the only thing I can think of is it's with the NAT exemption settings.
Below is the snippet of my NAT config.

The IP Address of their router is 192.168.6.2

As a test, I reconfigured the ASA to NAT internal traffic to the kcata interface and could ping the router then, just not with NAT exemption

Does it look correct for bi-directional comminication with NAT exemption?

Thanks,

Denny

A better way to do this would be a static like this:

static (inside,kcata) 10.40.117.0 10.40.117.0 netmask 255.255.255.0

This says that 10.40.117 inside is same 10.40.117.0 on kcata interface, effectively natting it to itself

But, you also have to allow their network in through an access-list
access-list kcata permit ip 192.168.6.0 255.255.255.0 10.40.117.0 255.255.255.0
access-group kcata in interface kcata

Thank you for the reply. This sounds reasonable and I will certainly give it a shot. Should my above configuration work though?

Thank you,

Denny
