  • Cisco Employee,

Can you ping the management interface from your pc?

MAke sure you also generate a key "crypto key generate rsa mod 1024".


I hope it helps.

Java logs from the machine on which we try and access ASDM.

Please visit the following url and download asdm 6.2(1) version:

Please upload this file to flash and enter the following command on the firewall:

asdm image flash:asdm-621.bin

For uploading the file to flash please follow the procedure as mentioned in the below given link:

This should fix the issue.

I think you need ASDM version 6.x to connect with ASA version 8.x.

You need to have Device Manager Version 6.1(5)

Upload this image of asdm and

config t

no asdm image disk0:/asdm-522.bin

asdm image disk0:/asdm-615.bin

Reload the Firewall.

Also see that your java is updated.
