do you have all files (initrd, kernel and .bin) available?


the error you've got is usually due to a corrupt file/IOS.


try to re-download those files, restart PC and try again.


this is the same link i've followed and should work fine.

hi,


sorry, i've just checked my setup. there's should be no .bin file used.


you should only use the two files: initrd and kernel.


the initrd file should be "unzipped" so check on that.


as for the other stuff, you type the activation key in global config once ASA is up and running.


also, you'll need a TFTP (search for TFTPD32) to load an ASDM image. we issue in ASA the copy tftp flash command.

hi,


did you run/open GNS3 as admin?


if it's still not working, try to uninstall/re-install GNS3.

Try shutting down any firewalls and security applications you might have running on that box, also try to get the latest version of GNS3 and run it as admin.

hi,


your qemu setup looks ok. seems like you didn't run as admin or have an incompatible GNS3 version.


try to find a version that works on your PC and make sure you've got admin rights on your PC.

issue is i cant find the Loop back adapter in clould icon when i am configuring it. I am able to found  only wireless and Local adapter connection. Thats why i am getting network connection error. because both will be disconnected when i am trying to run ASA.. It was trying to connect through loopback, but it was not configured in cloud manager. Found the problem.. but to resolve it.. why i am not getting Loopback adapter in cloud icon when configuring it...
