I have a new cisco ASA 5510 that i have to configure for the first time. After setting my terminal emulator for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow control and connecting the appliance to my Pc with a console cable, i powered it on but nothing appears in the terminal emulator.
I'm not sure why your console connection doesn't work, but a new ASA 5510 should come with the management port configured for DHCP. It should give you something like 192.168.1.X (check ipconfig when you connect) then just open a web browser to 192.168.1.1 and use ASDM to get at your config. Then you can always set up/verify console or SSH if you prefer to configure that way.
Unfortunately, when i connected my PC to the ASA with a crossed cable, the management port of the ASA stayed shutdown. Then i can't connect to it.
I noted that there was a reset button behind the ASA. I pressed it longuely after a reboot in the hope that it would reset the equipement to the factory default but nothing happened. The situation is still the same. Is there another way to do a reset please?
I used both crossover and straigh cable to connect to the ASA's management port but, nothing. Also when the appliance in powered on, only the LED located beside the button power behind the device lights. The LED located in the front (power, status, active, vpn, flash) light and extinguish at the same time. None of them stay lighted.
