HOW TO HARD RESET

It's simple, how do I hard reset my Cisco ASA 5505. I found different procedures for restoring via CLI etc. There's nothing on how to use the RESET button in the back.

I think the "reset" button is just there to make us feel better. :)

If you cannot telnet or ssh to the unit, you will need a console cable.

Are you trying to power cycle the unit or return it to factory default?

Power cycle ->
pull the plug

Set config to factory default -> http://www.mailbeyond.com/restoring-factory-defaults-to-the-cisco-asa5505-firewall-via-the-console

Do you need to bypass the password ->

Factory Default:
ASA = 192.168.1.1

I dont have the console cable available.

I'd like to know how to use the Reset in the back. For example I tried holding it down for 30 seconds but nothing happened.

Ok... I borrowed a console cable and successfully reset it back to factory defaults.

Now I need help to:
1) configure the Ethernet Port 0 (VLAN1) to use a Public IP 216.123.2.192/255.255.255.248 DNS1 207.3.65.22 DNS2 207.3.65.32
2) configure the Ethernet Port 1 (VLAN2) to use an Internal IP 10.0.15.254/255.255.255.0

flip-flop your vlan assignments.  i have a problem with the ip address that you want to assign your public interface.  "192" is the network boundary.  my example shows the first usable IP -- adjust as needed.

config t

name-server 207.3.65.22
name-server 207.3.65.32

int vlan 1
 description private network
 nameif inside
 security-level 100
 ip address 10.0.15.254 255.255.255.0

int vlan 2
 description public Internet
 nameif outside
 security-level 0
 ip address 216.123.2.193 255.255.255.248

int e0/0
 description public Internet
 switchport access vlan 2
 no shutdown

int e0/1 description private network
 switchport access vlan 1
 no shutdown
end

what should I replace "name-server" with?? I don't have a dns server name, the ISP just gives us the public IP......

Jan SpringerCommented:
That only reflects the VLAN and Ethernet interface configuration with name servers specified.

There's something I didn't mention: can you first help me turn off DHCP for VLAN1 Eth 0/0, then configure the static?

... can we continue on the other thread?
