Cisco ASA 5505 series Adaptive Security Appliance


I have a Cisco ASA 5505. I have to change the external ip address.  I can telnet into the device but I need to know the exact commands to change the ip. I am unfamiliar with the operating system so if you could let me know exactly what to type, it would be very helpful.

Thanks! Your explicit directions worked perfectly! They can get to the internet!

However when I look through the config I still see the old ip on some lines:

access-list acl_out extended tcp any host eq www
access-list acl_out extended tcp any host range 4520 4524


static (inside,outside) netmask
access-group acl_out in interface outside
route outside

Do I need to change these as well?
you will need to  change the access-list and static statement's ip addresses to the new address.

the route statement should *not* have the exact, old ip address. it will most likely be different by 1 in the last octet of the address? in that case it wont need to be changed if you are not changing the subnet.

if you are changing the subnet, then the route statement will need to be changed. if you're not sure, tell us the subnet mask (the b.b.b.b part of the ip command above) and the last part of the old and new ip addresses, then we can advise if the route statement will need to be changed.
can you paste a sanitized version (remove passwords and unique IP's) of your config here please, then i can tell you what to type. and what needs changing.
also dont forget to change youre default route x.x.x.x if needed.
else you wont have a route to the internet
