How to configure ASDM on Cisco ASA 5505

Hi Naushad,

First of all you need to load the ASSDM image on ASA and then use the command:

asdm image dosk0:/asdm645.bin     (if image name is asdm645.bin)

then:

http server enable

http 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 inside      (if your machine is in 10.0.0.0 subnet behind inside inetrafce)

Go to the machine, open a browser and type in:

https://

it will open the GUI.

How to configure ASDM on Cisco ASA 5505

Dear Varun,

From where i can download this bin file. And another thing, my Firewall is configured on a production server. Will there be any connectivity fluctuation during this process ?

How to configure ASDM on Cisco ASA 5505

Dear Varun,

When i am trying to download the .bin file from the link you have provided, i am getting the following message.

To Download this software, you must have a valid service contract associated to your Cisco.com user ID.

  • If you do not have a service contract you can get one through:

    • Your Cisco Account Team if you have a direct purchase agreement with Cisco


    • Your Cisco Partner or Reseller

  • Once you have the service contract you must associate your service contract to your Cisco.com user ID with Profile Manager

Hi Naushad,

To download any software you need to have a  valid Cisco contract and a CCO ID for it, otherwise you won't be able to do it.

Thanks,

Thanks for that utterly

Thanks for that utterly useless response. Glad Cisco cares so much for their customers, they make it impossible to download the software they wave in front of you and tell you that you need. So I'm stuck using this ridiculously asinine command-line interface for a ASA 5505 that seems to have lost its GUI interface (404 error when accessing any page via https including the root), and am unable to download the file needed to repair it.

It probably doesn't matter one bit to you, but thanks to your aloof reply here of "oh, you need to have a service contract" as if that's somehow something to be taken for granted, ensures I'll be recommending against Cisco products any time I see them.
