Hello, Not sure how you want

Hello,

 

Not sure how you want me to help. The error says it all! The password is wrong.

 

Do you have any other username/password that you could use to connect and change yours as it looks you forgot it. Otherwise try to access it via console and change it.

 

Regards.

If you are unable to access

If you are unable to access the ASA via the console port to change your password (this is assuming the ASA is not configured to use a TACACS+ / RADIUS server) then you will have to perform a password recovery.
