ASA5510 Advice - on how best to change IP address on i/face and all rules, objects

Hi

I have a Cisco 5510 which has four interfaces.

One of the interfaces named LAN has the subnet 10.20.0.0/16. A number of firewall rules and objects are configured with this network range.

I need to change the subnet from 10.20.0.0/16 to 10.76.0.0/16.

I was think I would just search and replace the running-config for 10.20 and replace with 10.76 then TFTP it to the ASA?

Is the easiest way?

That's my suggestion.  One caveat, the config files on the device itself are saved in a Unix file format.  (The file contains carriage returns, but no line feeds, or something.)

TFTP the config to your PC, edit it with a Unix-compatible text editor like PFE32, then TFTP it back.

Do the above, but replace the startup-config instead and reload the device without committing running to startup.

Any suggesting on what to do if I loose contact?

How can  I transfer the start-up config to the router over a console cable?
