I have a asa 5505 at a remote location, in which does not allow me to access using: http, telnet, or ASDM.
When I attempt to access via ASDM I receive the following error: unable to launch ASDM from (IP ADDRESS)  unexpected end of file from server

    Accepted Solution

    I don't see this in your config:
     asdm image disk0:/asdm-602.bin


    Assisted Solution

    make sure you are trying to run ASDM on a computer that is on the same network as those you specified for management:

    http inside
