Cisco ASA 5510 basic configuration to access internet

Hi,

I'm playing around with an ASA 5510 and being a complete Cisco newbie I'm having problems getting it to connect to the internet.
What would a basic nat configuration through asdm look like? Something basic to get internet connection up, then I'll start playing with rules and security.

I have a fixed IP address to the internet.

Thanks

ASA NAT is dependent upon the operating system.  A change was made in 8.3.

You'll need to identify whether you're running 8.2 and earlier or 8.3 and later.

I'm not a Cisco whiz by any means but my early difficulties came from not setting up the default gateway.  If I recall correctly, the wizard didn't ask for it.

Like said before, there were some changes made in 8.3 regarding NAT amongst others.

A basic setup would be something like:

>=8.3

interface GigabitEthernet0/0
 nameif outside
 security-level 0
 ip address 194.1.1.1 255.255.255.252

interface GigabitEthernet0/1
 nameif inside
 security-level 100
 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

object network inside_network
 subnet 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0

nat (inside,outside) source dynamic inside_network interface

route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 194.1.1.2


<8.3

interface GigabitEthernet0/0
 nameif outside
 security-level 0
 ip address 194.1.1.1 255.255.255.252

interface GigabitEthernet0/1
 nameif inside
 security-level 100
 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

global (outside) 1 interface

nat (inside) 1 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0

route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 194.1.1.2


Of course you need to adjust the public and private IPs to your own situation.
This should be enough to get you started.
