Hi, So you say that you have

Hi,

 

So you say that you have a Router behind the internal interface of the ASA and that they are connected using the subnet 192.168.1.0/24? This would likely mean that there is some other subnet behind the Router where the actual hosts are located at?

 

If that is the case then you would need an additional command for the subnet where the users are.

 

http <user subnet> <mask> inside

 

You would also naturally have to make sure that the ASA has the "route" for the user subnet pointing towards the Router IP address

 

route inside <user subnet> <mask> 192.168.1.2

 

But if you actually have hosts in the subnet 192.168.1.0/24 between the ASA and the Router then you should be able to access ASDM currently. If you dont have the ASDM on your computer then you should connect to the ASA interface with the browser "https://192.168.1.1/"

Hi, To my understanding ASAs

Hi,

 

To my understanding ASAs usually come with a guide to get started and this usually includes instructions on how to connect to the ASA using ASDM.

 

I think by default the Management port on the ASA should have an IP address and DHCP Server running. So if you connect your PC to that port with DHCP enabled you can probably easily connect to the ASA using ASDM.

 

Here is a link to the Quick Start Guide

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/quick_start/5500X/5500x_quick_start.html#pgfId-35215

 

Naturally if you are having problems with ASDM it might even be problem with the current Java version.

Hi,

 

No, its only meant for CLI access of the ASA.

 

Later when you configure additional interfaces on the ASA you can configure any of them for ASDM access depending on where the users who need ASDM access are located at.

 Yes Jouni you got it right

 

Yes Jouni you got it right,however currently i disconnected all the internal network.I have a asa connected to the router and thats it,now in order to access the asdm from the pc what all i need to do.

Do i need to enable dhcp on asa so that the pc will get the ip automatically.

Moreover my management port is having ip 192.168.2.100/24.

Thanks

Hi, Well I guess your main

Hi,

 

Well I guess your main options are to connect a PC/Laptop to the Management port directly. If there is no DHCP configured for the port then configure the PC/Laptop to the same subnet as the Management interface and then connect to the ASA interface IP address with the browser using HTTPS.

 

You can naturally connect your PC/Laptop to the Router but in that case you have to make sure that the configurations I mentioned above are configured on the ASA for the host to be able to connect to the ASA from behind the Router.
