DHCP on the ASA

I am directly connected to the ASA 5520 management interface with my laptop and using the DHCP scope assigned by the ASA. I can ping from laptop to the ASA but not from the ASA to the laptop....
Any suggestions ?   I need to copy / tftp files from my laptop the the ASA ....

Do you have a personal firewall enabled on the laptop?  If you issue the "show arp" command from the CLI on the ASA, do you see an ARP entry for the laptop IP?

You can always establish a GUI (ASDM) session to the ASA with and then use the GUI to transfer the files via https instead of using tftp.  However, if you're like me, you just want to know why it's not working the way it should to begin with...

Dude thanks i cant believe i didnt  think of that. Working now i couldnt use the GUI to transfer the file because its the  newer version of ASDM that i am trying to TFTP to the ASA. The older version on there would not have worked with the new code......thanks again
