New CLI Commands Needed for Cisco ASA 5506

David Elebute
Last Modified: 2018-02-06
i am trying to configure the ASA as I am replacing a ASA 5505 with a 5506
I am finding that many of old command line uses are changed
global (outside) 1 interface
nat (inside) 0 access-list 101
nat (inside) 1 0 0
I tried to put this above statement in and I keep getting NAT errors
same with:
static (inside,outside) 50.192.x.x 192.168.70.x netmask 0 0

any and all help is greatly appreciated

That's not a difference between the 5505 and 5506, that's a difference in software releases.

Your 5505 must be running 8.2.5 or earlier and your 5506 probably has > v9.

In 8.3, there were major NAT changes and some very modest changes in 8.4.

Thank you Jan I knew that the changes were made
I am looking for a sample or someone to show the new syntax needed
Most Valuable Expert 2015

If the 5505 wasn't in production, I'd say do an upgrade to 8.2, then 8.3, 8.4 and then 9.

Otherwise you need someone to rewrite your NAT.
