ASA 5505 after setting firewall transparent option by mistake.


Unfortunately we've changed firewall transparent option by mistake, after disable this option and restore factory-default, it doesn't work properly. Any idea about what the problem will be?

we are not able either to access asdm.

There's no ASDM image

There's no ASDM image specified in the configuration.

Do a "dir" to see your image version available on disk and then specify it thus in the config:

asdm image disk0:/asdm-xxx.bin

(substituting your version for "xxx")

unfortunately it didn't fix the issue.

It looks like after modifying the config someone overwrite the new one and now if we do a default restore it is not configuring the same thing.

You don't seem to have added

You don't seem to have added the image into the config as I recommended earlier.

Please do so as follows:

conf t
asdm image disk0
wr mem
