I would like to have some input on setting up my ASA 5505 using ASDM in order for it to work with my SBS 2008 network. I will be happy to provide any information requested. There has to be someone that has this same design in use already. All I need are some configuration pointers.
Thanks,
DEP

I am not currently sing an ASA 5505 but have on a few occasions. I assume you are wanting to configure the port forwarding for your server. SBS 2008 requires the following ports (depending on which services you wish to use)
25 SMTP Exchange Mail Delivery
443 SSL for OWA, RWW, and Sharepointnt
987 for RWW
1723 PPTP for VPN
The following is a good example of forwarding port 3389 (not needed on SBS) using an AS 5505. Other ports are forwarded in a similar fashion.

Here is some detailed information.

I am using "ASDM 6.4.1" to configure the ASA
The ASA version is 8.4.1
I will gladly attach my config file if requested.

I need to get the server to allow communication to email that I have on GO Daddy. I know that this must be a setup issue on the ASA but that is where I am stuck. A configuration example that shows the steps to use for opening ports 25, 443, 987. aND 1723 Would be what I need.
Is this possible?

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Well, I use the CLI.  But under 'tools' in the ASDM you also find the command line interface so you could add it from there.
To open these ports and forward them to an inside server enter the following:

object network public_address
 host 1.2.3.4
object network private_address
 host 192.168.200.123
 nat (inside,outside) public_address
access-list outside_access_in line 1 extended permit tcp any host 192.168.200.123 eq 25
access-list outside_access_in line 2 extended permit tcp any host 192.168.200.123 eq 443
access-list outside_access_in line 3 extended permit tcp any host 192.168.200.123 eq 987
access-list outside_access_in line 4 extended permit tcp any host 192.168.200.123 eq 1723

The public address here is 1.2.3.4 and the private (internal server) address 192.168.200.123. You need to replace them (off course) with your own addresses.
