Hiii Varun,


it's working perfectly, but why i can't connect via SSH or ASDM? i'm using my laptop and connect directly to interface 0/1 and SSH enable and i'm able to ping this interface. (also from ASA i can ping my laptop) but unable to access it via ASDM or even CLI "SSH"


can i know where else i need to check to access the device via ASDM? note that currently ASA software ver 8.4(3),  ASDM image: 6.4(7)


i still can access my ASA via console


please Advise

Hi Fadi,


Difficult for me to tell, but yes a few pointers that I can give:


Check "show run asdm", it should have the new ASDM image set asdm-647.bin...


Check "show run http", it shud have the correct settings.


For SSH:


Try "show run ssh", right configujration should be there.


Try generating the crypto keys again.


For ASDM, open the browser and type the url https://a.b.c.d    and then check.


Hope that helps.


Thanks,

Varun
