port forwarding issue on a ASA 5505
Posted on 2009-02-18
I have configured 2 cisco asa 5505 and they are connected via VPN tunnel.
the emails are going through the first firewall and should be redirected to the second firewall,
so I added those lines to the first firewall but the forwarding doesn't seem to work:
access-list inbound extended permit tcp any interface outside eq smtp
static (inside,outside) tcp interface smtp apfelcore smtp netmask 255.255.255.255
where apfelcore is the name of the exchange server behind the second firewall.
FYI I can ping the server but when never I tried to telnet port 25 I got a connection time out
I tried to send smtp traffic to internal interface of asa1, then forward the smtp traffic from asa1 to asa2 but that didn't work either...
I am trying to forward the https port as well and I am having the same issue so I believe that I am doing something wrong and stupid :-(
thanks for your help
