Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

Hi all,

recently, ater successfully connecting the VPN to the ASA 5505, I am unable to then launch the ASDM client meaning that I can only SSH in to the unit.

I found an old post from 2008 and replied to that also to get some help. It refers to an article talking about it is not possible to enable https server and webvpn on the same interface.

Well I am running ASA 8.0(4) so this restriction does not apply.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for investigating this?

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

Hi,

all you need to do is change the asdm port.

http server enable *****new port*** eg: 8443

Then open as follows:

https://xx.xx.xx.xx:8443

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

hi,

i will try that as a work around but my query is that nothing has changed for this to stop working and the version of ASA software I am running allows me to run both ASDM & webvpn o the same interface using 443.

It ws working  couple of weeks ago, and now is not.

Without rebooting the unit to see if that solves it, is there any kind of logging / debugging available to view?

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

Try https://ip_address/admin

or you can move the port to 8443 or some other port suggested by mlatham67.

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

Thanks for the reply Kusan,

unfortunately, the url does not work. It simply does not display the web page. Almost as if like there is an issue with the HTTP server side of things.

are there no debug commands that I can use to see if the ASA throws up any errors when trying to connect the ASDM client?

I'll try and change the port number, even though I am reluctant to as it was working fine as I said before.

If that fails, i'll have to restart the unit I feel.

any more assistance appreciated.

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

To ASDM make sure when you vpn in you are connecting to the private IP address of the ASA not the public and your vpn group policy allows the connection.

Add this:

conf t
management-access inside
Also make sure you vpn address is not restricted to manage ASA
http x.x.x.x 255.255.255.0 inside
As far as i know you dont need to change any port for ASDM to work!
Good luck

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

Pls. copy and paste the output of

sh run http

sh asp table socket

You should see in the logs what is happening.

conf t

logging enable

loggin buffered 7

exit

sh logg | i x.x.x.x

where x.x.x.x is the ip address of the client that you are using to manage the ASA.

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

I am trying to view the log but it seems that there is so much in there that I do not get any

results when trying to filter by the IP of the machine that I am running the

ASDM on.

I'll keep trying to see if i manage to see any entries in there which will be of any use.

Thanks again

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

I tried the following from cisco.

https://217.20.20.227/admin

and its works great. I got a login prompt.

ASDM is working as expected.

If you are trying to reach it from the remote network via VPN then you need this line.

management-access inside

and then you can use the https://192.168.10.250

My machine is the 192.168.101.6 address and the ASA is 192.168.10.250 but I cannot see any entries in there refering to HTTP requests.

Confused!

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

Thanks for all your help so far...

I have that line in my config so it should work from the 192.168.101.0/24 (VPN) network.

Do you have any idea why I do not seem to be able to get to that login page the same way I can from a server on the LAN (192.168.10.0/24) and from the web???

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

Hi,

i have been searching the logs for any denied traffic from the VPN network when trying to launch the ASDM and i have not come accross anything.

I am really at a loss.

I'll try and launch the ASDM from the web and monitor the syslog messages to see if that tells me anything as it is easier doing that than using the CLI for searching the logs.

Mario

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

Further update...

I have been monitoring syslog messages which do not show any traffic being denied.

This is really odd. It works internaly and from the web but not from a VPN client.

Please let me know anything else you need me to show you from my config to help resolve this issue.

Re: Cannot Launch ASDM from ASA 5505

Did you add "management-access inside"?

Once done pls. try to asdm to https://192.168.10.250  or htts://192.168.10.250/admin

watch the logs immediately "sh logg | i 192.168.101.6"
