Static NAT (SNAT)
object network obj-192.168.1.100 host 192.168.1.100 nat (inside,outside) static 188.8.131.52 dns
Allow outside connections targeting TCP port 80 to redirect to internal port 8080.

In the example bellow, the subnet will be on a port channel named inside2 and will have a obj-group called net-local2

Allow non-connected subnets
The ASA ARP cache only contains entries from directly-connected subnets by default. You can enable the ARP cache to also include non-directly-connected subnets. We do not recommend enabling this feature unless you know the security risks. This feature could facilitate denial of service (DoS) attack against the ASA; a user on any interface could send out many ARP replies and overload the ASA ARP table with false entries.
You may want to use this feature if you use:
Proxy ARP on adjacent routes for traffic forwarding.
Route LAN to remote subnet on physical port

In this example you will be able to connect to "192.168.3.0/24" from your local "192.168.2.0/24" subnet using the 192.168.1.2 port, the remote port will be on the same vlan using the IP 192.168.1.1

Allow FTP passive ports
The firewall will block this data communication because it will start from a different source port (20 instead of 21). The purpose therefore of the inspect ftp command on the Cisco ASA is to listen for the initial Command FTP traffic (on port 21) and dynamically open a secondary Data connection between FTP server and client (from port 20). This will allow FTP communication to work. If you disable FTP inspection with the no inspect ftp command, outbound users can start connections only in passive mode, and all inbound FTP is disabled.

Mitigating attack traffic
First of all we define which traffic the MPF policy will be applied to. In the example below we exclude the host 18.104.22.168 whilst inspecting all other traffic.
access-list mpf-policy-acl extended permit ip any any
Next we assign the previously created access-list to a class-map.
class-map mpf-policy match access-list mpf-policy-acl
Then a policy-map is created and the necessary connection limits defined.
policy-map mpf-policy-map class mpf-policy set connection conn-max 9500 set connection embryonic-conn-max 5000 set connection per-client-embryonic-max 100 set connection per-client-max 300
