Network Drive on DMZ

Posted on 2012-09-21

I Have a Cisco ASA5510 firewall, and have places a server on the DMZ.  I can remote desktop to the server, but I cannot mount a share on the server from inside the LAN?

Are there special security policies needed on the firewall to allow mapping of a network drive?

    Simple solution.... make an entry in the hosts file and all is well. Not very elegant but got us running.

    Opening the ports is also an option, but for those circumstances where access to firewall not allowed this works just fine
