I am trying to configure Cisco ASA 5510 firewall to allow access from LAN to DMZ web server. Web server is located in the DMZ and is using port 8080. I don't want users to type port number every time they try to access the site. So it should forward from 80 to port 8080. I have already done it to outside access. When outside users try to access the web server the port forwarding works but it doesn't work for LAN users. I have used ASDM to do that. Can you help to figure it out? What would be the command to fix that? Thank you.

Just curious - Why are you running a web service on 8080 in production in the first place? Why not run it on 80 and simplify your config? – MDMarra Sep 18 '13 at 18:34
it is not a production enviroment. there are two web servers on that box, one is using 80 and another 8080 – Sean Kilb Sep 18 '13 at 18:43
If you forward/translate 80 to 8080, then internal users will never be able to access the web server that exists on port 80. – cpt_fink Sep 20 '13 at 2:53
