Direct connect to ASA inside or mgmt interface from PC

does it work connecting PC w/ crossover or straight cable to the inside or mgmt port of ASA?

It won't work for me either way ... Just want to eliminate using a switch for now and able to configure via ASDM and load files via FTP from PC.

ASA interfaces are in no shutdown.

ASA has auto MDI/MDX doesn't matter if you use a straight or cross over cable

Hi,

Yes, you can access ASA from your pc using crossover cable.

To do so , you need to configure these commands,

- an ip address for the interface, of course with same ip range of your pc.

- enable http access , using the command

http server enable

- specify the pc's that can manage the asa, using

http ip_address subnet interface_name

example:

http 10.1.1.0 255.255.255.0 inside

regards

oh crop ... nothing wrong with the cable etc ...

My laptop is in a docking station and I figured out the problem.

Solution:

connect the cable from ASA to the docking station ethernet port. Don't connect to the laptop, it will not work !

sorry, my bad ! but,be curious those using with docking station ...
