Having a nightmare here with a brand new cisco asa 5505. About 6 hours into trying to get the thing working.
Firstly windows 7 refuses to get to its https://ip/admin
web interface, but i solved that by connecting from XP.
So, now I have factory reset it with the IP 10.5.0.1
I've got this simple topology:
Win XP Laptop on dhcp > ASA 5505 > Cable Modem > Internet
Now I run through the startup wizard, all seems obvious so hopefully no need to change much in there.
But I cannot get internet access and in ASDM it says "no ip address" on the outside interface. I think this is the problem I need to solve first ??
I tried setting the MAC address of the outside interface to the address of my old router in asdm, in case the ISP is securing by mac address. that didn;t work.
I wasnt sure which port address translation to use. I tried "no address translation" and also "PAT" with "use the ip address on the outside interface". Neither worked
Please help !!!!
