ASA 5510

Dear All

We have 2 cisco asa 5510 in active passive mode . When i check the failover it shows that both one asa is in active mode and the other  is in passive mode.

I am able to login to the primary firewall but not able to login to secondary . The secondary firewall prompts me for the username /password but does not display anything when i give my credentials

Kindly help

Re: ASA 5510

You won't be able to login to the secondary ASA as it is in passive move

if you want to access it force the secondary firewall to be the primary on and you also won't get access to the other one.

you only allowed to access on of them.

Re: ASA 5510

it is possible to login to the standby device using the standby ip address. check the logs as to why you are not able to connect to it.

Re: ASA 5510

Are you trying to telnet, ssh or asdm to the standby firewall?

If it comes up with the username and password that means the connectivity is there.

If you have tried ssh, try telnet or asdm and see if that works.
