Hi Naushad,

First of all you need to load the ASSDM image on ASA and then use the command:

asdm image dosk0:/asdm645.bin     (if image name is asdm645.bin)

then:

http server enable

http 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 inside      (if your machine is in 10.0.0.0 subnet behind inside inetrafce)

Go to the machine, open a browser and type in:

https://

it will open the GUI.

Thanks,

Varun

Dear Varun,

From where i can download this bin file. And another thing, my Firewall is configured on a production server. Will there be any connectivity fluctuation during this process ?

Hi Naushad,

You would first need to check whihc is the compatible image of of ASDM with your ASA version from here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/compatibility/asamatrx.html

and then go to this link and download teh image:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=279916854&flowid=4373&softwareid=280775065&release=8.4.2.ED&rellifecycle=&relind=AVAILABLE&reltype=all

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Varun

Dear Varun,

When i am trying to download the .bin file from the link you have provided, i am getting the following message.

To Download this software, you must have a valid service contract associated to your Cisco.com user ID.

  • If you do not have a service contract you can get one through:

    • Your Cisco Account Team if you have a direct purchase agreement with Cisco


    • Your Cisco Partner or Reseller

  • Once you have the service contract you must associate your service contract to your Cisco.com user ID with Profile Manager

Hi Naushad,

To download any software you need to have a  valid Cisco contract and a CCO ID for it, otherwise you won't be able to do it.

Thanks,

Varun
