20 Most Recent Cisco ASA 5510 Firewall Questions & Answers

There isn't a set time. It is a good practice to turn it off long enough that the electricity can actually dissipate. It certainly won't hurt anything to leave it off for a minute before turning it back on. Even removing the power cord in between is ok.

ASA's log is usualy stored localy on ASA itself, so easiest way to export that log is to go with telnet/ssh/console on it, do a command : show logging and copy/paste output into a new file.
but beware - this log is really short and as soon as ASA is rebooted - it's gone.
you could set asa to log to a syslog server (free on linux/freebsd or for windows use KIWI app).
that way all ASA log output is stored on pc/server running your syslog server.

nat (inside) access-list <ACLNAME>

Cisco ASA 5510... • Answered on Dec 25, 2010

Although I can't find anything specific about this, I am sure from experience that the access-list is applied to both interfaces because of the way that the firewall simply passes traffic through the interfaces, as they are not seen as a hop, nor do they have IP addresses allocated to them. If the access list has a source and destination, in theory it doesn't matter which way the packet travels it will still be seen and thus inspected on both interfaces.

I hope that this has been of some help, sorry I couldn't be 100% on the answer, but as I said, from experience I believe this is correct.

If you want any forther information, there is quite a lot of documentation on Ciscos site:
and something you might be particularly interested in is:
This is the configuration guide for ASA5500 via ASDM.

Hope that this has been of some use to you :)

It sounds like you have not allowed ICMP (ping) through the firewall, and you may need to put an access list in to allow this.

Cisco ASA 5510... • Answered on Oct 17, 2010

Your best bet is to place the ASA into 'transparent' mode, and letting the traffic pass through it and be inspected on the way through.

To do this you need to first do the following command:
firewall transparent

Once in transparent mode, the firewall will no longer look like a hop in the packets journey, and you can set rules to allow/disallow traffic using access lists on the inside and outside interfaces, plus you can perform packet inspections using policy-map and inspects.

Hope that helps!

Cisco ASA 5510... • Answered on Oct 17, 2010

If you are trying to access it remotely (via telnet or SSH), you will need to enable management on the interface that you are access it on, and it is also advisable to tie an access list to it.

If you are trying to access it via http, you will need to switch on http management with something like: http inside

hope that helps!
