I have used up all the physical interfaces of the ASA 5540.

Now I am left with no physical interface for managing the box.

I am running the firewall with multiple contexts.

Any comments/suggestions/solutions.

I want to ssh and asdm from the inside

The security appliance lets you share an interface between contexts". It is possible to share more than just one vlan between

two or more contexts.You can partition a single security appliance into multiple virtual devices, known as security contexts. Each context is an independent device, with its own security policy, interfaces, and administrators. Multiple contexts are similar to having multiple standalone devices. Many features are supported in multiple context mode, including routing tables, firewall features, IPS, and management. Some features are not supported, including VPN and dynamic routing protocols.

Hi Rishi,

Not sure whether you got problem solved or not.. here are my comment ..

* Use vlans feature to have subinterfaces

* You can ssh/telnet or access asdm from admin context only ..

If you are ssh to admin context then move to there context with the command "changeto contextname" ..

If you log in to a non-admin context, you can only access the configuration for that context

Here is a link for you reference :-

For commands to configure here is a link:
