We have an ASA 5520 with 4 interfaces, 2 interfaces connect to the internet uplinks on our datacenter and 2 are inside interfaces hosting servers for different clients.

We need to make sure the hosts connected to the inside interface are translated / accessed using the outside interface, and hosts on inside2 are able to access the internet on the outside2 interface only and mapped IP addresses on the outside2 interface should allow access to the clients connected to inside2. Is this at all possible? my config looks like this: we can easily ping and access hosts using the ip range assigned to the outside interface, but it does not work on anything connected to outside2/inside2. is the uplink router assigned to the outside interface , and is the router for the outside2 interface.
