If you want to run ASDM locally on your PC, then you need the ASDM launcher to be loaclly installed on the PC. Below are the release note which has the steps to download the ASDM launcher as an aplication on your PC and to manage the security device.

Below are the steps:

Step 1 From a supported web browser on the security appliance network, enter the following URL:


In transparent firewall mode, enter the management IP address.

Note Be sure to enter https, not http.

Step 2 Click OK or Yes to all prompts, including the name and password prompt. Leave the name and password blank (default).

A page displays with the following buttons:

?Download ASDM Launcher and Start ASDM

?Run ASDM as a Java Applet

Step 3 Click Download ASDM Launcher and Start ASDM.

The installer downloads the file to your PC.

Step 4 Run the installer to install the ASDM Launcher.

HTH,Please rate if it does.
