How do I download ASDM without a contract

My understanding is that ASDM is available free without a current contract but when I try to download the program I am advised I need a contract. Is there any way to get the current ASDM without a current license?

Hello,

 

when you go to your ASA admin page (https://ip-address-of-your-asa) there should be an option to download the files...

All I get is a login screen and my admin username doesn't get me in - it looks like a VPN user access login page. At top left it says "CISCO SSL VPN Service"

You need the IP address of the management interface. 

 

Also, you need this configured (provided your managment IP address if in the 10.10.0/24 network):

 

http server enable 443
http 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.0 inside

 

Also, there should be a default version already on your disk0. Check the configuration for a line similar to the one below:

 

asdm image disk0:/asdm771.bin

How do I ascertain the management IP if I don't know it?

Hello,

 

default IP address is I think 192.168.1.1.

 

Do you have access to the running configuration ? If so, can you post it ?

I do, but I'm not comfortable posting it online given it's for the firewall. There is no asdm reference in the running-config though.

See if you can work with this image...(rename it to .bin after downloading)...

Okay, so I uploaded the .bin file to the firewall via tftp.

Do I have to restart the firewall for ASDM to load?

Hello,

 

sorry for the late response. I am in the Central European Time Zone...

 

Either way, copy the file you downloaded to disk0 with TFTP.

 

Once the file is on disk 0, add the command:

 

asdm image dosk0:/asdm782-151.bin 

 

Make sure you have, as previously mentioned:

 

http server enable 443
http 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.0 inside

 

configured.

 

You should then be able to access ASDM by typing https://10.10.1.1

 

IP addressing is of course up to you, you might be using different addresses...

Is disk0 the same as flash? I ran sho flash and this is what I've got (the results are the same if I run sho disk0):

112 13934592 Aug 13 2010 15:15:56 asa805-19-k8.bin
So it looks like asdm has been uploaded to this device before - I'm guessing I should use the asdm-603.bin file since it is newest?

Re: How do I download ASDM without a contract

Hello,

 

which firewall model do you have, and which version are you running ? The ASDM version I sent you is for 9.x, looking at the date on your files, my guess is you are running 8.x ? Can you check ?

 

Either way, you already have ASDM on your disk:

 

106 6851212 Jun 26 2008 07:50:44 asdm-603.bin

 

Add the below command to your configuration and try to access it again:

 

asdm image disk0:/asdm-603.bin

OKay, I did this, and this appears in my running-config:

asdm image disk0:/asdm-603.bin
no asdm history enable

 

But I still don't get anything when I go to https://10.10.1.1

Re: How do I download ASDM without a contract

Hello,

 

on which interface do you have 10.10.1.1 configured ?

 

Without seeing your running configuration it is just guesswork. Which ASA version are you running ? I'll try and find a sample configuration.

 

Post the output of 'show version'...
