  1. Hi Asi,

    That’s no problem, let me know if you have difficulty understanding some of the topics.


  2. Hi Joseph,

    ASDM and Java can be an issue.

    First of all, ASDM 603 is ancient by now. I would start by upgrading it to the latest version, see what happens then.


  3. Hello Christopher

    When you say you weren’t able to “get thru” do you mean that you were unable to connect via a web GUI to the firewall? In order to use the ASDM to configure the ASA, you must have layer 3 access. The console connection will not allow you to work with ASDM. Take a look at this Cisco documentation on how to prep an ASA to function using ASDM 7.6.

    I hope this has been helpful!


  4. HI,
    Thank you for the link. Im still kind of stuck and wondered if you can point me in the right direction please. I have a cisco 2821 router with a gig0/0 interface plugged into the cisco asa 5510 ethernet 0/0 port. I have pasted in the asa config in hopes that you might see what might be wrong. i cannot ping from the router to the asa. both are in the subnet. i tried both straight and cross over after hearing that asa interfaces dont have the auto sensing mdix stuff. could you let me know what my issue is please.

    ciscoasa# sh running-config

  5. Hello Christopher

    I’m not sure why you are unable to ping. However, you can turn debugging on on the ASA and see if the ping actually reaches the device, and if so why it doesn’t respond. If there is no debug output, the ping doesn’t actually reach the device. If it does, it will tell you why/if it doesn’t respond.

    As far as MDIX support, the ASA supports both crossover and straight-through cables.

    Let us know your results. I hope this helps.
