port 25 is not open on a ASA 5505

I am trying to set up my mail server through a Cisco ASA 5505.

Port 25 seems to be blocked although I believe that it is opened on the firewall.  Additionally I am trying to allow ICMP  traffic to test the server right now and I can not get that to work either.  Any ideas as I am sure that I am doing something wrong.

These are the lines that I have that relate to the smtp.  Anything that I am missing?  i dont see smtp defined as an object-group in the programming, but i figured that it was just in the hard coding of the firewall?


access-list 100 extended permit tcp any host 68.167.116.xxx eq smtp
access-list 100 extended permit icmp any any
 
static (inside,outside) 68.167.116.xxx 192.168.222.x netmask 255.255.255.255
 
access-group 100 in interface outside

Your config looks fine.  Can you telnet to port 25 from an inside PC to your mail server?

Is the Windows Firewall running on the 192.168.222.x host?  The 192.168.222.x host has the ASA 5505 as its default gateway, right? or if not on the same subnet, the ASA has a route to 192.168.222.x?

> dont see smtp defined as an object-group in the programming, but i figured that it was just in the hard coding of the firewall?
Correct.

Ok I found the problem.  Its my fat fingers.  I have another Fios connection that I use for a test network.  I went to go change the gateway to test it through that modem and it looks like I jammed on the keyboard to hard.  I hit .22 instead of .2 for the gateway.

Thanks for pointing out a few things to make me check my own dumb mistakes.
