Hi folks!

We have a recently installed Cisco ASA 5505 firewall that replaced our old PIX 515E unit. All has been working normally with no apparent problems. However, when I'm logged in through the console port, I am periodically seeing this error:

ERROR: open failed for device: ftpc/1/***

I've done some Google searches, but can't seem to find out what this error means, let alone how to address it. Any help in deciphering it would be most appreciated.
