Re: VPN help

This is not a difficult task - there is a wizard you can use when you access the ASA via the ASDM.

When you log into the ASDM you will see a menu item called "Wizzards" then choose "VPN Wizard" then choose "Remote Access"

This will guide you thru all the steps.

Re: VPN help

Thanks for your help actually there is no ASDM installed in the ASA and customer is not ready to buy it from cisco so i had to do it with command can you please help me out secondly what is the way to check wheather ASDM is there or not.....thanks again

Re: VPN help

The ASDM software is free when you purchase the ASA device & is supplied on a CD-ROM.

You can d/l the software if the customer has a support contract and a cco login.

The ASDm is stored in the flash on the device - a show flash will show you if it is already on the device.

Re: VPN help

hi i did the show version now hoe do we connect to it....its https i know that and we have to enable http on firewall but what ip shd i put on my broswer and which interface do i connect my i have a question like sdm is there any way it can be stored on laptop and connect to asa even if asa doesnt have one (ASDM)

Re: VPN help

When the ASDM is in flash and configured for use, you can connect to it and it will give you the option to install it as an application on your machine, the steps are:-

1) Configure the image

asdm image <>:/<>

2) Enable the http service

http server enable

3) Configure HTTP Access

http <> <> <>

4) Configure the HTTP authentication

aaa authentication http console LOCAL (This will allow local usernames to connect)

5) Create the user for ASDM access

username <> password <> privilege 15
