I can't seem to get the ASDM to connect and display the IPS (ASA-SSM-10). I continue to get the "error loading module" when trying to connect via the ASDM. The command and control interface (G 0/0) is connected to the local net and is pingable fromm the ASA. I also have no problem sessioning into the IPS via the ASA CLI, and the acls in the IPS are establishe to permit the proper source networks to connect. I've seen reference to this problem while using version 5.x, but the IPS 6.x was supposed to fix. ANy help is truely appreciated.
Thanks, but those bugs weren't the problem... I realized the problem to be my understanding of the connection process to the IPS via the ASDM. I was under the false assumption that only the ASA needed the connectivity to the IPS's management (G 0/0) interface, but now I realize that the PC that launches the ASDM must have IP connectivity/reachability not only to the ASA, but also to the IPS module's management interface.
