I have an ASA 5510 which is configured and working fine. I'm now tasked with configuing an SSM (remotely).
In the ASDM, when I click IPS I'm asked for the management port IP. Is this the same management port IP used to configure the rest of the firewall or one pertaining just to the SSM? If I enter the IP of the firewall management port then I get a username/password prompt. I've tried cisco/cisco, blank/blank, cisco/blank, blank/cisco etc. No joy. It hasn't been used before.
The documentation says to plug one end of the yellow ethernet cable into the SSM and one to "your network device". What network device?
The documentation indicates that in ASDM, under Interfaces I should have 4GE SSM. I don't. I only have three ethernet ports and a management port. Does this mean that I don't have what I'm told I have, or that I have to do something else first.
Can it be configured from the ASDM?
