Problem upgrading firmware in ASA EasyVPN remote

I have a bunch of ASA5505's setup as EasyVPN remote clients connecting to an ASA5520 that I want to upgrade the firmware in and cannot figure out how to. I can telnet and run the ASDM to them but cannot unpgrade firmware via TFTP or browsing to local files from the ASDM. Anyone done this?

This link provides both ASDM and CLI intructions for upgrading the image on an ASA:

If you are getting an error during the process, post the screenshot.

Re: Problem upgrading firmware in ASA EasyVPN remote

Yeah I checked that link. And I've upgraded my headend 5520's many times via TFTP and local browsing of files. Problem is I am connecting to the EasyVPN remote via the inside interface (from the server side) and if I telnet to that device I cannot ping back to the host connecting from. I suspect this is the problem and don't know the resolution. If I am connected directly to the EasyVPN remote I can perform the upgrade. Of course this is impossible with the deployed devices. I need help from someone who has worked with this type of configuration. Heather, have you?
