My background is Wintel servers, but thought I should get to grips with some Cisco networking so brought a second hand ASA 5505 from eBay for home to play with. When it arrived the previous config had not been cleaned down and there was a password set.
I had a look online and got some instructions on entering ROMMON to erase the config. Unfortunatly I didn't really know what I was doing and erased the disk by running the command 'erase all' thinking the firware was in ROM and the config would be stored on the disk.
As a result, I now have a nice door stop!!! I'm able to boot into ROMMON and have found instructions to restore the ROM from a TFTP server which I've set up, though I cannot download the required firmware from Cisco as I don't have a support contract.
Any advice on how I could get this back up and running would be really really appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
