comment Cisco: Route Outbound SMTP Traffic on Same IP as Inbound
it's all or nothing with object-groups, you can't specify a single static route as you are suggesting. I would have to specify smtp, http, ftp, etc. separately and it will do nothing to solve the problem, have already tried the explicit track. The problem, as stated in the linked thread, is that outbound smtp port is not at all guaranteed to be port 25; and when it's not 25 (like always), the implicit static route for smtp protocol is ignored, and the default is used instead, which just so happens to be the external ASA IP -- totally f-ing useless as far as serving legit mail is concerned ;-(

comment Cisco: Route Outbound SMTP Traffic on Same IP as Inbound
Thanks but check out the object-group, it already does that implicitly for services listed (smtp, www, https, etc.). The problem I think is that the ASA takes inbound smtp on port 25, but sends outbound on a huge port range (i.e. not necessarily 25). See article I linked to

comment Is Firmware OS Independent?
In what way on earth is this question off topic? While the answer is likely obvious to those who voted to close it, the question might be of some value to those of us who, while google'ing for an answer to said question, were not able to find any definitive answer as to the dependency relationship between OS and installed firmware.

+1, fair enough, nothing critical listed, but sounds like there may be some benefit. It's now or never as Fedora is going on to-be-formatted drive shortly.
