I had to rebuild the HDD and lost the various settings. With the new rebuilt computer, I can`t access the ASA.
I can see the com port (currently COM3) in device manager which disappears when I remove the console cable. Settings are correct (9600, 8, 1, none, off).
When I use either PuTTY or TeraFirm I get a blank screen. When I hit a key, it asks for username and then password - NO hostname.
ASDM access on Https://192.168.1.1
again asks for username and password - no access.
This ASA has been working now for months, and still is - all that has changed is now I have no access to it.
Without at least console access I can`t do anything.
Any help would be gratefully received :-(
