I didnt post a config bc my question is real basic.
What type of NAT or PAT do I use if I want to use a single static IP on the outside, and a 172.16.0.0/24 net on the inside?
This is driving me crazy. I have been working on it all day - trying different things - I started with the CLI and then tried ASDM.
I started today by doing a config factory-default; write mem; reload
I have a pool of 5 static IPs but just want to use one. Im almost ready to scrap this stupid ASA. I bought it to practice on, but its become so complicated. Sorry for the rant but its been a long day. I do not know how you Cisco experts can remember all of the nuances of the different commands plus all of the router and switch commands...and then all the other stuff that you know. Its almost too much.
IIRC, the base config on the ASA already is setup for basic PAT, unless ASA above 8.2 does something wierd... again.
Believe me, don't let you getting frustrated over this kind of thing think you're alone in the world of Cisco. Me personally I've had 6+ years at this, and I can STILL screw up stupidly with the best of em.
