i found the best way to do this to avoid errors (or errors that you dont notice or know about) is to copy/paste only small sections of the existing config at a time. This way, you will see any errors/messages that come up.

I did about a dozen like this without a problem.

like one poster said, make sure your old config isn't use conduits. cisco offers a tool to convert conduits to acl's if you are. occ.exe or something like that, i can't remember.

Hi Suleiman,

Assuming that your previous version var 6.3(5) that it does have static statements instead conduits, you wont have much trouble.

In ASA firewall, first copy ASA's current config to tftp by

copy running-config tftp://tftpserverip/asaoldconfig

Then to copy the config of 6.3 config, run the folowing in ASA

copy tftp://tftpserverip/6.3config startup-config

wr mem


After you reboot ASA, you will be prompted as "this command is depreceated" or "line xx" if there are complications. Note down these prompts and revise your config.


Regards
