5505-can't connect to ASDM in transparent mode

Unanswered Question

Hello, I'm setting up an ASA 5505 in transparent mode. I can ping the ASA device on the network but I cannot connect via ASDM software. When I revert back to routed mode, no problems using ASDM. I'm connecting via enet cable from laptop to Ethernet 0/1 interface on ASA 5505. I try the 'http ipaddress subnet' command and it won't take it even tho it's the same IP as the device. Do the 'switchport access' command to E 0/1 and doesn't stick. Here's my config if it helps. I really appreciate your help!
