If I dont have network connection with an ASA 5510 and want to connect to it to tftp a IOS can I utilize the management port for it?
If so how is this done? I tried plugging my laptop into it and gave the management port 5.5.5.1/30 and my pc 5.5.5.2/30, but can't ping between the two devices.

Did you issue the 'no shutdown' command for the management port?
Generally, I use the INSIDE or TRUSTED interface for TFTP.
And I presume you mean the management port and not the console port. (not trying to be flippant - just verifying).

Yes, that should definately be possible. Can you post your current running-config here?

I suspect his test with ping failed because he was missing :
icmp permit 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 MANAGEMENT,  where 192.168.1.0 is the attached mgmt subnet.

Typiclly the mgmt port comes with dhcpd enabled and this default subnet, so that you can manage from this interface. You might also check to make sure ssh and https access are enabled:
http server enable
http 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 MANAGEMENT
ssh 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 MANAGEMENT

Boilermaker85: Neither of what you write should affect pings FROM the asa, or tftp.  

We still need to see the config in order to help.
