Linux KVM/VMWare bridged interfaces and the Cisco 5505


One of our dev shops uses a Cisco 5505 ASA box for routing and firewall purposes, and we're running into an annoying problem when running bridged connections from VMs.

Occasionally, for no reason, the Cisco will block outbound connections from the VMs. Anything on the internal network is fine, but no external connections will be allowed. The ACLs all permit unrestricted outside access, so I am wondering if there is something in the way the bridging is done that might trigger an ACL on the Cisco.

No, there's nothing in common that could possibly trigger an ACL. your best bet is to capture the traffic on the VM, Host or ASA and see what it actually looks like for some subtlety.
