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)
