Configure two outside IP blocks on an ASA5505

Hello,

We have an ASA5505 running  8.2(1) and ASDM 6.2. We recently upgraded to fiber and we were given a second outside IP Address Block by AT&T but can't get them to work with our current outside IP Block. AT&T has the first block of IP's assigned to one port on their Router and the second block on another port of their router. We have the first outside range plugged into our ASA on port 0/0 (as "Outside") and we just added the second range of IP's on port 0/1 of our ASA (as "outside40").  We need to somehow add this second outside range of IP's so they can be used by outside vendors to get into our LAN.  It seems like we need to add a second Static Route for this new block of IP's to work but the ASA won't allow it. Is there some way around this or is it  just not possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
pbmtech

The proper way to do it (if you only needed an additional assignment) would be for AT&T to route the 2nd subnet to the IP of your existing inside interface.

Then, as you create static NAT entries, it will just work.

Actually what needs to happen is that both addresses are used on the same outside interface.  So you have address space A and space B.

Address space A is currently used between ATT and the outside interface of the ASA.

What normally happens when a second block is used is that ATT will add that second address space as a secondary network on their router on the same interface as the first block.

When you build your NAT statements on the ASA, it tells the ASA to handle ARP on the outside interface for these new addresses.  

So you shouldn't have to add a route, or add an extra interface on your ASA for this additional block to work.  Just start building your NAT rules and ACL as if they actually lived on the outside interface.

Darn it, I meant outside interface.

Ok great. We were stumped on this one and were not sure where to go from here. I will contact AT&T and request that they put the new IP Block on the same address space as the first. Thanks to both of you for the quick response!
