I have sucessfully upgraded my ASA 5510 device to software version ASA8.0(4). I also have upgraded the ASDM software to version 6.1(5). However, when I try to start the Cisco ASDM Launcher v1.2(1) from my PC I get the following message:

Unable to launch ASDM from Connection timed out.

On the ASA 5510 device I have changed the asdm image to point to disk:0/asdm-615.bin, wrote to memory, then reloaded.

I am using the same IP, username, and password as before but I am now getting this timeout error.
