Thanks for the reply u are the one that respond to me.

So does that mean that i cannot use RSA tokens to authenticate my ASA via ASDM?

Cause I login to ASA via ACS DB it will has several authentication login and this will pose a problem as RSA token has a unique passcode every time.

Actually SSH to ASA is workable. cause it only need to authenticate one time. But for ASA via ASDM it need to authenticate a few times causing RSA token authentication to fail.

Is there any expert can help on this?

Can any cisco support engineer give advise on this?

How come RSA token via radius server is not supported by ASA using ASDM?
