security levels and Vlans

We have a number of Vlans with different security levels.  When all the Vlans are set with the same security level on our ASA 5545, the Vlans can communicate.

When i change the Vlans to different security levels, they cannot communicate.  

Is there a command i can use to enable this?

Yes, you need to create an access list for the higher vlan which allows traffic to the lower vlan.

access-list dmz extended permit tcp 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 host 172.16.31.43 range 1433 1434

where dmz has subnet 192.168.1.0/24 and has a security level higher than 172.16.31.43.

without any rules other than the implicit deny for interfaces accessing higher from lower shouldn't hosts in the higher vlan be able to access hosts in the lower vlan?

I add a rule between the two hosts allowing access from the lower to the higher and I then can ping both ways.  Remove the rule and I cannot ping.

How do I configure it so that only the higher vlan is able to ping the lower vlan?

Its like ICMP traffic isn't allowed to make the round trip without the rule in place.

oh gosh, yes, I had that backwards.  what does packet-tracer show?

packet-tracer input ZONE PROTO ORIGIN_IP 65535 DEST_IP DEST_PORT

i.e.,

packet-tracer input inside tcp 172.16.31.43 65535 192.168.1.34 eq 1433 detail
