Problems with ASA Console session

I can?t connect to console in a ASA 5540.

I was working checking some configuration lines and I got disconnect and now it?s impossible to get into.

is there any way to get console without reset the ASA ?


Re: Problems with ASA Console session

Hi .. if you know the IP addresses of its interfaces then you can allocate yourself an IP in the range of the M0/0 port and then ...

Alternatively, for management purposes, you can also connect an Ethernet cable to the

adaptive security appliance MGMT port. TheMGMT port is a Fast Ethernet interface designed

for management traffic only and is specified as Management0/0. The MGMT port is similar to the

Console port, but the MGMT port accepts only incoming traffic.

Of course you can also ssh or telnet in to the ASA ..

I hope it helps .. please rate it if it does !!!

Re: Problems with ASA Console session

Well, The ASA was configured and I was working remote through SSH and Telnet.

Without any messages the ASA doesn?t respond any Telnet and SSH request, and I tried to go with ADSM tool and I got the following messages:

"ADSM is unable to read the configuration from ASA since it is currently synching"

What does it means ? How can I get the console without reset the ASA ?
