from the command line:

copy tftp flash

after that, the prompts will walk you through it.

rommon #14> ping

Sending 20, 100-byte ICMP Echoes to, timeout is 4 seconds:


Success rate is 100 percent (20/20)

rommon #15> tftp

ROMMON Variable Settings:

oh, i didn't know you were in ROMMON mode.

and you tftp server is definitely running? does the tftp server show any errors?

the file, asa723-k8.bin should be inthe root directory of the tftp server also.

I am using Solarwinds TFTP server

Tftp does not show error. It is written only < TFTP Server Service Started [UDP -69 ] >

I am log on in ASA device using console cable. I make ping my computer from ASA device but it is not the same when I try making ping Devices from my computer

I can not make ping the device

Make sure either udp port 69 is entered in any running firewall exceptions or firewall is disabled

make sure you dont have a firewall installed on your pc that is blocking the tftp application.

You had right the firewall was the problem.

However I dawnload the asa721-k8.bin file in to device but there is the same problem.

ASA does not boot
