ASA 5505 blocking remote SQL connection
Posted on 2011-03-24
We have a Cisco ASA 5505-50 onsite. Our users need to connect to a SQL database on another network using a VPN connection. This connection works fine from anywhere besides our inside network behind this firewall(ie. from home and coffee shops). IP is enabled for all inside traffic (outbound) and i tried opening TCP and UDP ports 1433 and 1434 on the outside interface but it didn't change anything. I feel it may be related to a fixup protocol but nothing is jumping out at me. I tried unchecking "SQLNET" in the inspection policy but again, no difference. Any idea what could be blocking our SQL connection? I can post the ASA config if needed but I was hoping to get an answer without having to do so.
