How can I reset an ASA 5505 ?

It seems that I managed to set a field that determines what IP is authorized to administer the ASA, and I set it to 192.168.10.12. Well, that subnet got an error and doesn't yet exist, and 192.168.1.1 is no longer authorized.


While I was in there I tried to set Vlan3 to be 192.168.1.1 and authorize it in case things went afoul, but Vlan3 got an error and failed too.


So I tried pressing and holding the reset button. It doesn't work. The book says it is for future use, and using the CLI I can see that my outside IP is still in place, meaning the reset button did not reset the device.


I can still get in with CLI on COM1, but don't know the commands. If someonce could point me to a CLI command reference I might get it. Or maybe the command to allow https access on 192.168.1.1 again.


Thank you in advance.
