ASA 5505 Remote Access to ASDM

How do I enable remote access to ASDM from outside of the network on the ASA 5505?  This would be used for remote access to the firewall at a site that is not utilizing VPN.

Thanks in advance !

If I get your question correct, you can enable http on the outside interface;

http server enable

http 255.255.255.255 outside

Hope that helps,

Thanks,

It is for https connection only.

You enter the following URL to access it:

https://

which is on port 443.

Re: ASA 5505 Remote Access to ASDM

That's no problem. Under the covers ASDM is actually opening a URL that resides in the ASA configuration in memory. The ASA is smart enough to distinguish that from https traffic destined for your server.

Re: ASA 5505 Remote Access to ASDM

ASDM uses http(s) for communications to the ASA. So, you need to add the command:

http source_IP_address mask source_interface

Example:

hostname(config)# http 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.255 outside


in your configuration. That is further described here.
