ASA 5520/Cant Get ASDM To Launch

i have a new ASA 5520 with only factory default settings. I ran the  commands below on the CLI as instructed for a Cisco document but i cannot access it via https://192.168.1.1/admin like it says i should be able to.

Step 1 To identify the IP addresses from which the security appliance accepts HTTPS connections, enter the following command for each address or subnet:

hostname(config)# http source_IP_address mask source_interface

Step 2 To enable the HTTPS server, enter the following command:

hostname(config)# http server enable

Step 3 To specify the location of the ASDM image, enter the following command:

hostname(config)# asdm image disk0:/asdmfile

when i ran step 3 i got a printout of Device manager image set, but unable to find disk0: /asdmfile??

any help ?

Hi Joseph,

You need to add:

http 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0

So, if you are connected via inside, the command would be

http 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0  inside

Re: ASA 5520/Cant Get ASDM To Launch

Check "sh disk0:" to see if you have an ASDM image. And then point to it with the "asdm image " command. Make sure there are no typos.

If there is no image, you need to copy it to disk0: from a tftp server.

Make sure you use an image compatible with your ASA. 8.0 and 8.2 can work with ASDM 6.2.

I hope it helps.

Hi Joseph,

What do you see under "show run asdm" ?

Re: ASA 5520/Cant Get ASDM To Launch

ciscoasa# show run asdm

asdm image disk0:/asdm-621.bin

no asdm history enable

Re: ASA 5520/Cant Get ASDM To Launch

Hi Jospeh,

That means the image is correctly set and is pointing to 621.bin. Now, when you try to access the asdm, do you see any error message?

Also, what is the java version you are running on your machine?

Re: ASA 5520/Cant Get ASDM To Launch

Hi Jospeh,

Are you able to ping 192.168.1.1? What is the ip address of your machine? Can you give me the output of "sh run http"?

Also make sure you have a key "crypto key generate rsa mod 1024".or else https to the ASA will not work.
