Hello all, i have a fully configured and functional asa 5505 and i have another one brand new.  what i am going to do it place the brand new one where the current one is, and take the current one elsewhere and configure it differently.

So what i need to know is a way to save or export the exact current config on current ASA5505 so i can import it to the new ASA5505 so i can just plug the new one in so its like nothing happend.

Thanks for any information.

ok, i restored the config to the new ASA and everything seems to be up... But i can no longer access the ASA using the webpage. i get to the page where it asks me for the password, after i type it and click ok, i get a "page cannot be displayed" page.

What can i go to get access to the asa?

I wonder if the user names/passwords did not transfer over. Have you tried the defaults to see if you can get in (blank username and password)
