Cisco ASA Connect to CentOS 6.6 Server Via SSH From Outside to DMZ

Hello Experts:

I have one server in a DMZ60 network.  I need to make this server available to some contractors outside our network.   Therefore, I need to open ssh, http, and https from the DMZ60 to the OUTSIDE interface.  

I have been trying to get SSH working, but I still cannot get it.

This is what I have so far:


ASA# sh nat | incl 167.192.X.X   (External address)
98 (DMZ60) to (outside) source static web-192.168.X.X-dmz -websites-167.192.X.X-OUT
ASA# sh nat | incl 192.168.X.X  (DMZ address)
98 (DMZ60) to (outside) source static web-192.168.X.X-dmz -websites-167.192.X.X-OUT

ASA# sh run | incl 167.192.X.X   (External address)
object network websites-167.192.X.X-OUT
 host 167.192.X.X
access-list in1 extended permit tcp any object websites-167.192.X.X-OUT eq ssh
access-list DMZ60-in extended permit tcp any object websites-167.192.X.X-OUT eq ssh
 nat (DMZ60,outside) static websites-167.192.X.X-OUT

ASA# sh run | incl 192.168.X.X  (DMZ60 address)
object network web-192.168.X.X-dmz
 host 192.168.X.X
access-list in1 extended permit tcp any object web-192.168.X.X-dmz eq ssh
object network web-192.168.X.X-dmz

DMZ60-in and in1 are two ACL groups that have objects inside them.  I believe that the one DMZ60-in is the one for servers inside the DMZ and the in1 is for servers in the inside interface.

I think I do not need in1, but it is just there since I have no idea how to make this work.

The attache word document shows that output of Packet Tracer that I do not know if I am using properly.

All of the above configuration(s) is correct.  The problem was that I was using the wrong gateway on the Linux server.  Once I corrected that, everything started working.
