https://<ip address of ASA>
Download/install ASDM then use ASDM to access the ASA
Username must have privilege level 15

To revert to a previous version
From ASDM use backup/restore configurations tool
From CLI, you can use tftp to retrieve a previous file, and add "clear config all" as the first line of the archived config.
Then simply "write mem" when done and this saves to startup

Hi,
login via telnet if needed provide username & password
check if '#' in front of the cursor, if not type 'enable' and provide password
to save config use :
write mem
to load previously saved config:
copy Config1 running-config
or copy Config1 startup-config to copy directly to startupconfig (will be loaded at reload)

i thinks its ASA 5505

1) How do I login to my Cisco ASA 505 router with the proper security level?

you can login to ASA using console or via ssh/telnet or via SSL (ASDM)
default there is no password

2) How to I reload a previously saved config file?

just save the config and reboot.
How do I save the newly loaded config file so it loads everytime I power cycle the router?

 if u want to boot from a specific config file ,then
type the below commands

boot config disk0:/<your config file name>

for eg: boot config disk0:/configuration.txt

then save the config ( command wr mem)

then reload
