How to configure ASA ASDM

I'm trying to get ASDM activated on my ASA, but I'm having trouble.  I've configured the following:

asdm image disk0:asdm-631.bin.
http server enable.
http 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 inside

but I still cannot access the ASDM from the inside network.

FYI: The system runs fine otherwise, is accessible from telnet inside and is running software version 8.3(1)

Am I missing something?

Is the asdm image loaded? If so the version is shown with the "show version"-command.

Hi,

You need asdm image on flash:

CiscoASA# dir

Directory of disk0:/
132    -rwx  14240396    15:41:06 Mar 25 2010  asdm-631.bin

after you need to enable asdm:

asdm image disk0:/asdm-631.bin
asdm history enable
http server enable
http 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 inside
aaa authentication http console LOCAL

How are you trying to access it? Through ASDM itself, or from HTTPS?
What type of error do you receive? Page not found, or??

Cannot Access PIX / ASA  ASDM

Make sure the problem is NOT on your client machine first.

1. First make sure you have Java installed
2. If you’re using a new version of java (Above Version 6 update 12) then downgrade your version.
3. Make sure your using Internet Explorer/Firefox or Mozilla.
4. Make sure you are NOT trying to access the ADSM through a proxy server.
5. Can another PC access the ADSM?
6. If the ADSM Opens but will not launch properly > File > Clear ASDM Cache > Clear internal Log Buffer > Refresh Running Configuration with


Before you proceed make sure that the ASDM has been enabled.

1. Connect to the firewall either by SSH/Telnet/Console Cable.
2. Issue an "enable" command and enter the enable password.
3. Issue a show run command and make sure that you see the following in the running configuration on the device.

Http server enable

Note If you see "no http server enable" then its disabled and you need to go to "Configure Terminal" mode and issue a "http server enable" command.
Note If you see "http server enable {a number}" then it has been set up on a different port number and needs to be accesses via https://ip address:{a

number}

4. Providing the server is enabled you need to ensure that you have been granted access to it you can grant access to a network or an individual host.
5. Ensure the IP address you are trying to open the ASDM from is included in the config, i.e.

Http 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.255 inside <- Will allow this one client
or
http 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 inside <- Will allow the entire network

Note if you are outside the firewall yours should say "outside" not "inside".

6. Next make sure the Firewall is looking at the correct file to launch its ADSM look for the following,



ON AN ASA FIREWALL
asdm image disk0:/asdm-522.bin
asdm image disk0:/asdm-613.bin etc

if that command is missing or wrong you won’t be able to launch the ASDM either to make sure that the file exists issue a "show flash" command,

Firewall# show flash
Initializing disk0: cache, please wait....Done.

Apparently, the asdm image was corrupted during upload - Uploading the image again corrected the problem.
