Allowing ASDM access using the "http x.x.x.x"

Unanswered Question

This is strange.

My ASDM workstation IP is 192.168.1.2

My ASA is 192.168.1.1

I cannot access the ASA with ASDM if I have the following line in my config:

http 192.168.0.0 255.255.0.0 inside

However, I *CAN* access the ASA if I change the line to be:

http 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 inside

That doesn't make much sense to me.

Basically I'm setting up a network of ASAs all on 192.168.x.x and I want to be able to access them with ASDM anywhere in my internal network, so I figured the more general "http 192.168.0.0 255.255.0.0" config line would be the proper way to do it, but it seems I can only use a more "specific" config line.

Anyone have any ideas why this is happening???

So are you saying I have to have a separate "http 192.168.x.0 255.255.255.0" for all the networks that I'm going to be using ASDM from? Yuck.
