ASA 5505 ASDM trying to contact CISCO

Why is my Cisco ASDM for my ASA 5505 trying to contact CISCO at

lbj.cisco.com

171.68.10.156:80 SYN_SENT

It only happens when I use the Real Time Log Monitor or the Log Buffer Viewer.

As soon as I close down ASDM the connections shown with netstat -an to CISCO go away.

171.68.10.156 never responds. Anyone else seeing this?

Re: ASA 5505 ASDM trying to contact CISCO

You should connect to the ASA OOB port for ASDM. ASDM will manage the IPS software on the SSM while ASDM is running connected to the ASA OOB port. In short, use ASDM to the OOB port on the ASA, click on the IPS link, then accept (or change if needed) the IP address of the SSM at the dialog box.
