Hi,

I have a Cisco ASA 5505 Firewall.  I'll be changing over to a new ISP which means I'll have a new Public IP address range.  Can someone advise the steps needed to make the change through the command line interface?  The outside IP (Vlan2) will obviously change.  What is the command to change that and is there any other commands that need to be run?  I'm familiar with making the changes to the ACL.  Please advise.  Thanks.

Where do I put the new gateway address?  I see there's a 'route outside' command.  Is that it and what are the commands to change?  Also, is there an easy way of changing the ACL or do I have to go through and say "no access-list............ and then retype access-list........with new IP"?  Thanks.

Or you can just paste your configuration into notepad make the necessary modifications to it. Put your router in Global-Config mode and paste the necessary sections into the router. This is a quick and easy way to do this. By doing it this way you are merging the new configuration into the router and just overwriting the necessary sections.

Make sure to backup your current config to tftp server. This will make your life much easier.

Ok.  Must be missing something.  Tried this tonight but did not work.  I first typed:

interface vlan 2
ip address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 255.255.255.xxx

did Ctrz Z and sh run to make sure it took it.  Entered config mode again and typed:

route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 1

for the default gateway of new ISP then typed no route outside to remove gateway of old ISP.  sh run and everything looked okay.  From the ASA, I was able to ping a couple Public IP addresses (server in my office, etc.) and got a response.

However, from a CMD on any computer on the LAN, could not ping anything outside or get a web page to pull up.  What am I missing?  I hadn't changed anything else at this point.  Do I need to edit the ACL?  I wouldn't think so because everything out is allowed.  My ACL only has incoming port forwarding.  Was I supposed to type the Global (outside) or the NAT (inside) commands after changing the IP on the outside interface?  All gateways on LAN computers are pointing to the local IP of the ASA, which never changed.  DNS on all workstations are pointing to my DC which is pointing to itself and has the ISP forwarders.  Any ideas?

Thanks.
