Since we lost the password for our WAN Checkpoint FW, I am replacing it with an ASA5505. To start with, I keeping it wide open “permit ip any any” as it is a secured private MPLS between our sits only. Everything is working fine, can ping systems between sites and RDP computers etc… except that our MS Exchange Server not working or communicating with the primary exchange server in other site to send or receive any emails… But I can ping and RDP both servers from both end.

Since it is wide open “permit ip any any”; anything else I need to permit/configure in ASA 5505 for the MS Exchange traffic to pass through?

Thanks gdewrell

Acutally it has to do with fixup/inspect. I just need to power off and power on after the changes.  It is working now.
