Cisco ASA5505 Web Interface Login.

We recently took over office space that that has a Cisco ASA5505 that was installed but has no documentation for the box. I was able to connect to the box via serial connection and do a password reset to get into it via serial in the privileged mode. Now my question is when I connect to the box via browser it is asking for a username and password. Where can I find that and or reset that username and password. Thanks.

Get in the console (serial connection) and set your own. Use the follwing as example:

username ray password cisco priv 15

Then login with that.

I reset the "enabled" or "privledged" password. Did not know how or where the user / passwords are for the web interface.

When I logged and and typed wr t I see a user name xxx and password xxx encrypted privilege 15 but that username and password will not let me log in from the web interface. Could not add a username, did not accept command.
