  • How to configure cisco 515e firewall

    Hi there,
    I have a new cisco 515e firewall which I am going to use for autofailover active/standby unit in case of hardware failure. Now I have connected my unit with serial port to my machine through hyper terminal. I have also installed asdm on my machine but I can't connect my unit through asdm. I will appreciate if anyone can help me with a complete procedure so that I can check what I have done(may be something wrong) and also configure further.
    Well i know when i will connect with my primary unit it will copy over the configuration automatically but still I want to access it through asdm.
    Please help me.
    cheers

    I don't believe you can connect to the adsm without having an IP address on the box.

    Using the serial connection can you login to the pix and post the config (without identifiable info).

    THe commands you are looking for are:
    http server enable
    http 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
    or similar.
    cheers

          Also i have enable http still....doesn't seems to be working. Can I ask you one question. I am trying to backup my primary router for that I need to ping my machine from that. To do this I have given an external IP to my machine. Now another problem I am getting is if I give a static IP than I can;t connect it to the ASDM (primary router), it only works with DHCP. But if I assign DHCP than it wont be able to ping. Dont know what to do ???

                The router should have a default IP scheme in it. It usually will tell you in the documentation the default IP and most times you can setup you lan card to use DHCP and grab an IP from the router.

                Then simply run ipconfig /all and the gateway is the router IP.

                You may need to terminal in and reset the device to factory settings.
