    I have chosen to use the management port on my ASA5510 (no management-only) for a satellite backup solution. I have done the following to make it as close to possible as my existing outside interface:

    assigned it to the same access group
    assigned it the same security level (0)
    global nat

    I assigned the man0/0 int an IP address (public) that is in the subnet that my provider gave me.

    It shows the connected route when I “sh route”

    I can ping the sat router from the firewall but can not ping it from anwhere else on my network.

    I could ping the SAT router (through my regular Internet connection) until I assigned the Man int an IP address in the SAT ISPs subnet (thus causing the C route). Now I can’t ping it

    I also can ping the next hop (different ISP subnet) in the SAT network until I put a route in the firewall that points to my man0/0 int. Once that route is in, I can’t ping it.

    If I hook up a laptop to the SAT router w/ a crossover, it works fine.

    Any ideas?
