Need to count IP address hits

Posted on 2014-11-20

Hello

Task - I have been asked to check if certain NAT rules are being utilized at this time, usually this would be a matter of looking at the firewall (ASA in my case) or to simply look at the end devices to check if there's any incoming traffic from the outside. Either option is not available right now.

Scenario - We currently use the ISP as our firewall, they firewall and NAT outside addresses into our internal addresses. The ISP doesn't provide NAT metrics to us. Incoming traffic hits our edge router and then our ASA (used for VPN mostly).

What I have tried - I put an ACL on our edge router interface (in) permitting the NATted to internal ip addresses expecting to  see some ACL matches if hit. See text below for ACL and interface configs.
ON the ACL I have tried with and without the "LOG" option.

What is the method to collect IP traffic information on a Cisco 1941?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

You could also configure the ASA with rules for each device, it will also keep a counter on rule hits ... not exactly sure why you don't get any hits on the single IPs in the access list, unless the IOS is optimizing the access list matches (try adding an arbitrary deny rule between the last specific permit and the permit any rule ... not sure if that will do anything)

if you can configure logging and log to an internal syslog server, the sky is the limit with analyzing the log data.

Thank you Garry-G and Jan,

I will try both. I need to wait until Monday to do any work on the router. I will post the results then.

Thanks again

If you are open to more extensive analysis, things like Netflow Accounting could deliver even more information ...

The ACL with a deny statement did the job.
