Re: ASA 5505 Permit RDP 10 years 5 days ago #29267

Hello ,

You need statics and access-lists for RDP issue.

Staic (inside,outside) tcp public ip 3389 private ip 3389 netmask
access-list outside_in permit tcp any host public ip eq 3389

And regarding the NAT for DHCP range there are different options and you got to choose from them.

one way is

nat (inside) 2
global (outside) 2 dhcp start ip - dhcp end ip netmask x.x.x.x

Yes, PAT is used only for outbound traffic and you cannot establish a inbound connection to a PAT IP address, for a Inbound connection you need to One to One NAT / Static. with a ACL permitting the traffic.

Backing on Patiot's for RDP allowance.

For NAT, it seams that your config is wrongly using outside NAT in those two lines:

[code:1]global (inside) 1 interface
nat (outside) 1 Client_DHCP outside [/code:1]

(Unless this was done for something else), You need normal inside NAT, like this:

[code:1]global (outside) 1 interface
nat (inside) 1 Client_DHCP[/code:1]

By the way, the network is not defined any where in your interfaces!! :?

the replies you got about static and acl are correct. Regarding nat/global statements, always have in mind that you must use global command on a lower security level and the nat command on the higher security level.

example: nat(inside) 1
global(outside) 1 interface
