cannot connect to ASA after changing IP


I have one ASA which is for client VPN connections and site-to-site VPNs

I changed its IP address, now i'm not able to connect to it.

Here is the detail

vlan522 <=> SW1 <=> g0/48( <=> e0/1 ( <=> FW1-ASA 5510

FW1-ASA 5510 has futher site-to-site VPNs and also client VPN for users to connect from outside, which authenticate from a LDAP server from INSIDE and also DHCP is on INSIDE.

* Now problem is i'm not able to ssh to ASA ( but ping is working.

* and client VPN is not working, i'm able to ping LDAP/DHCP server from ASA.

if you did not save the configuration changes just reload the device and you should recover previous configuration

The IP address on the ASA configuration points to, did you change this IP address to

The reason that you would not be able to reach would be because network layer 3 devices don´t know how to route to the ASA, log into console and change it back to what it was.

Why did you change this?

I added another ASA device and have to assign to that device.

So i assigned to this.

Sorry I did not understand what you are trying to say.

And also layer 3 device is connected to this ASA via G0/48 and there is a " directly connected" route to So how does it not know the route.


Fixed it.

Problem was somehow the configurations went missing.

I added following conf and it is working fine now.

for ssh: ssh inside

for VPN authentication server configuration was missing. Added following:

aaa-server vpn_bmeng_aaa (inside) host netservice

ldap-base-dn *******

ldap-group-base-dn ou=Technical

ldap-scope subtree

ldap-naming-attribute uid

ldap-login-password *****

ldap-login-dn ***********

server-type auto-detect

Also had to fix switch to route reverse traffic for VPN connected hosts to correct firewall.

Great to know that everything is working. Please rate our assistance.
