Could you please elaborate a little bit more on what your issue is?
Sent from Cisco Technical Support Android App
I locked myself out of my own ASA5505 VPN and I cannot reset the device. I searched and saw this:
I can't access the document/resource to see the solution. I tried the reset button and couldn't find a reset switch on the motherboard. How do I reset the unit to the factory defaults without having to access some proprietary documentation?
Its easy, you have to follow these steps to recovery the password without change the configuration or if you want, you can restore the ASA to the factory settings.
Note: ASA5505 doesnt have a reset button to restore settings.
1. Unplug and plug the ASA
2. press Break or press ESC repeatedly
3. You go into rommon mode
4. rommon #0>confreg 0x41
5. rommon #1>boot
6. The device will reboot normally, but will not have settings applied
7. asa> enable
Note: No password if requested so press enter when ''password:'' appears
And you will have a resetted ASA5505

I hope it helps.
I get a 403 Forbidden message. What does that mean?
