static route

Hello Experts.  I need some help on a networking issue

I have an asa 5505 firewall at the edge of my network.  I have 2 subnets; .5 and .7, each on a separate port (0 and 1, respectively).  I have a few devices on the .7 network that I need to be able to access the .5 network.  Can I accomplish this via a static route in the firewall?  If not, is there a way to do this.

I know this is not ideal and it is not a long term solution.  But I don't have the time/resources to do this the way I'd like to right now.  I need a stop-gap until I can devote more time to it.

Since you have defined both network in ASA, you no need to have static route on ASA.

Its all directly connected network and both network can ping, if you don;t have any deny acl or nat in between.

You can define both interface security level is same and that should be enough to communicate.

And, if that still didnt worked, apply same security intra interface command on ASA.

Actually a static route is not needed.   Since both networks are directly connected to ports on the firewall, the ASA will already have connected routes defined for each network in the routing table.

You can issue the command show route to see that the firewall has these routes in place.

What needs to happen is the static nat rules to allow the traffic to flow between the two interfaces.  

Here is a quick link that will show you what it takes.

Hope that helps
