Dear All,

I am trying to configure my ASA 5510, I restored it to factory default settings by using

(config)#configure factory-default

now,, in the books, the author said, by default there is no username and password to sign in into the ASA,, but when i open my browser and enter it asks for a username and password,

when i simply clicked on submit button without entering any username and password,, it doesn't go forward,,

then I made a username and password on ASA using

username ------ password ------ command

now, it accepted the password,, but not launching its software,,, it hangs on the dialog window

Cisco ASDM Launcher,,

Device Ip



I also tried to use JAVA based configuration,, but when i open the window,, it shows a message, ble to load application, Exception in Starting Main wi

I updated my Java Runtime by downloading it from but no result,,

Please help,

I had the same issue before with Win Vista and java 6.13 in 2 laptops. In the end I giveup and i'm using XP with Java 6.13, and it work fine.

I hope it's not a bug!
