New Device Manager Features

ASDM Version 5.0F includes the following new features:

Supports all new FWSM Release 3.1 features. See the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and Cisco 7600 Series Router Firewall Services Module Release Notes for a list of platform features.

New GUI look-and-feel

The overall look-and-feel of the application has changed from PDM 4.1. There is a sidebar that highlights the high-level features. The Home Page has a live system log message section at the bottom of the panel. The categories (for example, Configuration > Properties) have been reorganized and are in alphabetical order.

(Windows only) Demo mode

If you use the ASDM Launcher to start ASDM, there is a Run in Demo Mode option. This option allows you to use ASDM without actually having a real FWSM. You must install the ASDM demo image to get the demo mode feature.

Back and Forward buttons

The Back and Forward buttons allow you to move back and forth between categories much like the browser Back and Forward buttons.

See the Toolbar.

Search button

This allows you to search for a category in ASDM. For example, you can do a search on SIP to find out where to configure SIP.

See the Toolbar.

Real-time Log Viewer

The Real-time Log Viewer shows you real-time system log messages. The system log message information is transferred over HTTPS.

See Monitoring > Logging > Real-time Log Viewer.

System log message enhancements

Identify the access rule that generated the syslog.

Using the Log Buffer or Real-time Log Viewer for system log messages 106100 and 106023, you can click this rule and click the Show Rule button. This shows you the Access Rules table and highlights the rule that triggered this system log message.

See Monitoring > Logging > Log Buffer > View button and Show Rule button.

See Monitoring > Logging > Real-time Log Viewer > View button and Show Rule button.

Filter system log messages.

You can filter the system log messages shown on any output device, including ASDM.

See Configuration > Properties > Logging > Logging Filters.

Create the opposite access rule to permit or deny the traffic from the system log message

Using the Log Buffer or Live Log for system log messages 106100 and 106023, you can click this rule and click the Create Rule button. This brings up an Add Rule dialog box to create the rule to permit or deny the traffic. The rule is placed at the beginning of the access list.

See Monitoring > Logging > Log Buffer > View button and Create Rule button.

See Monitoring > Logging > Real-time Log Viewer > View button and Create Rule button.

Color Settings

You can set different colors for different syslog levels.

See Monitoring > Logging > Real-time Log Viewer > View button and Color Settings button.

Find

You can search on any text in the syslog table.

See Monitoring > Logging > Log Buffer > View button and Find field.

See Monitoring > Logging > Real-time Log Viewer > View button and Find field.

(Windows only) You can run ASDM without a browser using the Cisco ASDM Launcher.

The ASDM Launcher lets you download and run ASDM locally on your PC.

Multiple instances of the ASDM Launcher provide administrative access to multiple FWSMs simultaneously, from the same management workstation.

The ASDM Launcher automatically updates the software based on the installed version on the FWSM, enabling consistent security management throughout the network.

File Management

This allows you to view, cut, copy, paste, delete, and rename files on the Flash file system. You can create directories and transfer files to and from other systems using HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, or TFTP.

See Tools > File Management

In multiple context mode, you must be in System mode to access this menu item.

Upgrade Software

You can upgrade the FWSM image or the ASDM image.

See Tools > Upgrade Software

In multiple context mode, you must be in System mode to access this menu item.

System Reload

You can reload the FWSM now or schedule a reload at a later time.

See Tools > System Reload

In multiple context mode, you must be in System mode to access this menu item.

Context Caching

Up to two contexts can be cached in memory. This allows switching between contexts without having to reread the configuration each time. It takes about ten seconds before the caching takes effect so if you switch between contexts rapidly, it does not cache the context.

Better support for handling large number of contexts

If you click the down arrow button from the File menu, it changes the context choice list to a list shown on the left-hand side. This allows you to view many contexts at once.

If you now click the < button, it shifts the context panel to the edge. If you mouse over the vertical text labeled Mode: Refresh, it expands the context choice list so you can click an item.

Online Help

The online help has been revised and has a new look-and-feel. It also supports searching.

Client PC Operating System and Browser Requirements

Table 2 lists the supported and recommended platforms for ASDM. While ASDM might work on other browsers and browser versions, these are the only officially supported browsers. Note that unlike earlier PDM versions, you must have Java installed. The native JVM on Windows is no longer supported and does not work.

Upgrading ASDM

This section describes how to upgrade ASDM. If you have a Cisco.com login, you can obtain ASDM from the following website:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html

This section includes the following topics:

Upgrading from PDM

Upgrading to a New ASDM Version

Upgrading from PDM

Before you upgrade your device manager, upgrade your platform software to Version 3.1. See Upgrading the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and Cisco 7600 Series Router Firewall Services Module to Release 3.1 for more information.

To upgrade from PDM to ASDM, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Copy the ASDM binary file to a TFTP or FTP server on your network.

Step 2 Log in to the FWSM and enter privileged EXEC mode:

hostname> enable
password:
hostname#

Step 3 Ensure that you have connectivity from the FWSM to the TFTP/FTP server.

Step 4 Copy the ASDM binary to the FWSM using the appropriate command:

TFTP

hostname# copy tftp://server_ip/pathtofile flash:asdm

FTP

hostname# copy ftp://[username:password@]server_ip/pathtofile flash:asdm

For more information on the copy command and its options, see the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and Cisco 7600 Series Router Firewall Services Module Command Reference.

Step 5 To enable the HTTPS server (if it is not already enabled), enter the following command:

hostname# configure terminal
hostname(config)# http server enable

Step 6 To identify the IP addresses that are allowed to access ASDM, enter the following command:

hostname(config)# http ip_address mask interface

Enter 0 for the ip_address and mask to allow all IP addresses.

Step 7 Save your configuration by entering the following command:

hostname(config)# write memory


Deleting Your Old Cache

In early beta versions of ASDM and in previous versions of PDM (Versions 4.1 and earlier), the device manager stored its cache in <userdir>\pdmcache (Windows) or ~/pdmcache (Linux and Solaris).For example, D:\Documents and Settings\jones\pdmcache.

Now, the cache directory for ASDM is in the following location:

Windows—<userdir>\.asdm\cache

Red Hat Linux and Sun Solaris—~/.asdm/cache

The File > Clear ASDM Cache option in ASDM clears this new cache directory. It does not clear the old one. To free up space on your system, if you are no longer using your older versions of PDM or ASDM, delete your pdmcache directory manually.

Upgrading to a New ASDM Version

If you have a previous version of ASDM on your FWSM and want to upgrade to the latest version, you can do so from within ASDM. We recommend that you upgrade the ASDM image before the platform image. ASDM is backwards compatible, so you can upgrade the platform image using the new ASDM; you cannot use an old ASDM with a new platform image.

To upgrade from ASDM to a new version of ASDM, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Download the new ASDM image to your PC.

Step 2 Launch ASDM.

Step 3 From the Tools menu, click Upgrade Software.

Step 4 With the ASDM Image radio button selected, click Browse Local to select the new ASDM image.

Step 5 Click Upload Image.

When ASDM is finished uploading, you see the following message:

"ASDM Image is Uploaded to Flash Successfully."

Step 6 To run the new ASDM image, you must quit out of ASDM and reconnect.

Step 7 Download the new platform image using the Tools > Upgrade Software tool.

To reload the new image, reload the FWSM using the Tools > System Reload tool.


Getting Started with ASDM

This section describes how to connect to ASDM and start your configuration. You can log in to the CLI and run the setup command to establish connectivity. See "Before You Begin" for more detailed information about networking.

This section includes the following topics:

Before You Begin

Downloading the ASDM Launcher

Starting ASDM from the ASDM Launcher

Using ASDM in Demo Mode

Starting ASDM from a Web Browser

Using the Startup Wizard

Configuring Failover

Printing from ASDM

Before You Begin

If you have a new FWSM, you can enable ASDM access by sessioning into the FWSM CLI from the switch and entering the setup command. The setup command prompts you for a minimal configuration to connect to the FWSM using ASDM. See the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and Cisco 7600 Series Router Firewall Services Module Configuration Guide to session into the FWSM. You must have an inside interface already configured to use the setup command. Before using the setup command, enter the interface vlan vlan_id command, and then the nameif inside command. For multiple context mode, enter these commands in the admin context.

Downloading the ASDM Launcher

The ASDM Launcher is for Windows only. The ASDM Launcher is an improvement over running ASDM as a Java Applet. The ASDM Launcher avoids double authentication and certificate dialog boxes, launches faster, and caches previously-entered IP addresses and usernames.

To download the ASDM launcher, perform the following steps:


Step 1 From a supported web browser on the FWSM network, enter the following URL:

https://interface_ip_address

In transparent firewall mode, enter the management IP address.


Note Be sure to enter https, not http.


Step 2 Click OK or Yes to all prompts, including the name and password prompt. By default, leave the name and password blank.

A page displays with the following buttons:

Download ASDM Launcher and Start ASDM

Run ASDM as a Java Applet

Step 3 Click Download ASDM Launcher and Start ASDM.

The installer downloads to your PC.

Step 4 Run the installer to install the ASDM Launcher.


Starting ASDM from the ASDM Launcher

The ASDM Launcher is for Windows only.

To start ASDM from the ASDM Launcher, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Double-click the Cisco ASDM Launcher shortcut on your desktop, or start it from the Start menu.

Step 2 Enter the FWSM IP address or hostname, your username, and your password, and then click OK.

If there is a new version of ASDM on the FWSM, the ASDM Launcher automatically downloads it before starting ASDM.


Using ASDM in Demo Mode

ASDM Demo Mode is available as a separately installed application running under Windows. It makes use of the ASDM Launcher and pre-packaged configuration files to let you run ASDM without having a live device available. ASDM Demo Mode lets you:

Perform configuration and select monitoring tasks via ASDM as though you were interacting with a real device.

Demonstrate ASDM or FWSM features using the ASDM interface.

Perform configuration and monitoring tasks with the Content Security and Control SSM (CSC SSM).

ASDM Demo Mode provides simulated monitoring data, including real-time system log messages. The data shown is randomly generated, but the experience is identical to what you would see when connecting to a real device.

ASDM Demo Mode has the following limitations:

Changes made to the configuration will appear in the GUI but are not applied to the configuration file. That is, when you click the Refresh button, it will revert back to the original configuration. The changes are never saved to the configuration file.

File/Disk operations are not supported.

Monitoring and logging data are simulated. Historical monitoring data is not available.

You can only log in as an admin user; you cannot login as a monitor-only or read-only user.

Demo Mode does not support the following features:

File menu:

Save Running Configuration to Flash

Save Running Configuration to TFTP Server

Save Running Configuration to Standby Unit

Save Internal Log Buffer to Flash

Clear Internal Log Buffer

Tools menu:

Command Line Interface

Ping

File Management

Update Image

File Transfer

Upload image from Local PC

System Reload

Toolbar/Status bar > Save

Configuration > Interface > Edit Interface > Renew DHCP Lease

Failover—Configuring a standby device

These operations cause a reread of the configuration and therefore will revert it back to the original configuration.

Switching contexts

Making changes in the Interface panel

NAT panel changes

Clock panel changes

To run ASDM in Demo Mode, perform the following steps:


Step 1 If you have not yet installed the Demo Mode application, perform the following steps:

a. Download the ASDM Demo Mode installer from http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html.

The filename is asdm-version-demo.msi.

b. Double-click the installer to install the software.

Step 2 Double-click the Cisco ASDM Launcher shortcut on your desktop, or start it from the Start menu.

Step 3 Click the Run in Demo Mode check box.

Step 4 To set the platform, context and firewall modes, and ASDM Version, click the Demo button and make your selections from the Demo Mode area.

Step 5 If you want to use new ASDM images as they come out, you can either download the latest installer, or you can download the normal ASDM images and install them for Demo Mode:

a. Download the image from http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html.

The filename is asdm-version.bin

b. In the Demo Mode area, click Install ASDM Image.

A file browser appears. Find the ASDM image file in the browser.

Step 6 Click OK to launch ASDM Demo Mode.

You see a Demo Mode label in the title bar of the window.


Starting ASDM from a Web Browser

To start ASDM from a web browser, perform the following steps:


Step 1 From a supported web browser on the FWSM network, enter the following URL:

https://interface_ip_address

In transparent firewall mode, enter the management IP address.


Note Be sure to enter https, not http.


Step 2 Click OK or Yes to all browser prompts, including the name and password prompt. By default, leave the name and password blank.

A page displays with the following buttons:

Download ASDM Launcher and Start ASDM

Run ASDM as a Java Applet

Step 3 Click Run ASDM as a Java Applet.

Step 4 Click OK or Yes to all Java prompts, including the name and password prompt. By default, leave the name and password blank.


Using the Startup Wizard

The Startup Wizard helps you easily configure a single mode FWSM or a context in multiple context mode.

To use the Startup Wizard to configure the basic set-up of your FWSM, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Launch the wizard according to the steps for your security context mode.

In single context mode, perform the following steps:

a. Click Configuration > Properties > Startup.

b. Click Launch Startup Wizard.

In multiple context mode, for each new context, perform the following steps:

a. From the Mode drop-down list on the left of the toolbar, choose System.

b. Create a new context using the Configuration > Security Context panel.

c. Be sure to allocate interfaces to the context.

d. When you apply the changes, ASDM prompts you to use the Startup Wizard.

e. From the Mode drop-down list on the left of the toolbar, choose the context you want to configure.

f. Click Configuration > Properties > Startup.

g. Click Launch Startup Wizard.

Step 2 Click Next as you proceed through the Startup Wizard panels, filling in the appropriate information in each panel, such as device name, domain name, passwords, interface names, IP addresses, basic server configuration, and access permissions.

Step 3 Click Finish on the last panel to transmit your configuration to the FWSM. Reconnect to ASDM using the new IP address, if the IP address of your connection changes.

Step 4 You can now enter other configuration details in the Configuration panels.


Configuring Failover

This section describes how to implement failover on FWSMs.

As specified in the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and Cisco 7600 Series Router Firewall Services Module Configuration Guide, both devices must have appropriate licenses and have the same hardware configuration.

Before you begin, decide on active and standby IP addresses for the interfaces ASDM connects through on the primary and secondary devices. These IP addresses must be assigned to device interfaces with HTTPS access.

To configure failover on your FWSM, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Configure the secondary device for HTTPS IP connectivity. See the "Before You Begin" section, and use a different IP address on the same network as the primary device.

Step 2 If the units are in different switches, make sure the switches can communicate with each other over a trunk that includes the failover and/or state VLANs.

Step 3 Start ASDM from the primary device.

Step 4 Perform one of the following steps, depending on your context mode:

a. If your device is in multiple context mode, choose the admin context from the Mode drop-down list, and click Configuration > Properties > Failover.

b. If your device is in single mode, click Configuration > Properties > Failover. Click the Interfaces tab.

Step 5 Perform one of the following steps, depending on your firewall mode:

a. If your device is in routed mode, configure standby addresses for all routed mode interfaces.

b. If your device is in transparent mode, configure a standby management IP address for each bridge group.


Note Interfaces used for failover connectivity should not have names (in single mode) or be allocated to security contexts (in multiple security context mode). In multiple context mode, other security contexts may also have standby IP addresses configured.


Step 6 Perform one of the following steps, depending on your security context mode:

a. If your device is in multiple security context mode, choose System from the Mode drop-down list, and click Configuration > Failover.

b. If your device is in single mode, click Configuration > Properties > Failover.

Step 7 On the Setup tab of the Failover panel under LAN Failover, choose the VLAN you want to use for the failover link.


Note In single mode, be sure to first add the failover link VLAN in the Configuration > Interfaces pane. Do not configure any parameters for the interface when you add it; all parameters are configured in the Configuration > Properties > Failover pane.


Step 8 Configure the remaining LAN Failover fields.

Step 9 (Optional) Provide information for other fields in all of the failover tabs. If you are configuring Active/Active failover, you must configure failover groups in multiple security context mode. If more than one failover pair of devices coexist on a LAN in Active/Active failover, provide failover-group MAC addresses for any interfaces on shared LAN networks.

Step 10 On the Setup tab, check the Enable Failover check box.

Step 11 Click Apply, read the warning dialog that appears, and click OK. A dialog box about configuring the peer appears.

Step 12 Enter the IP address of the secondary device, which you configured as the standby IP address of the ASDM interface. Wait about 60 seconds. The standby peer still could become temporarily inaccessible.

Step 13 Click OK. Wait for configuration to be synchronized to the standby device over the failover LAN connection.

The secondary device should now enter standby failover state using the standby IP addresses. Any further configuration of the active device or an active context is replicated to the standby device or the corresponding standby context.


Securing the Failover Key

To prevent the failover key from being replicated to the peer unit in clear text for an existing failover configuration, disable failover on the active unit (or in the system execution space on the unit that has failover group 1 in the active state), enter the failover key on both units, and then reenable failover. When failover is reenabled, the failover communication is encrypted with the key.

To secure the failover key on the active unit, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Perform one of the following steps, depending on your security context mode:

a. If your device is in single mode, navigate to Configuration > Properties > Failover > Setup.

b. If you device is in multiple mode, choose System from the Mode drop-down list, and navigate to Configuration > Failover > Setup.

Step 2 Turn off failover. (The standby should switch to pseudo-standby mode.)

a. Uncheck the Enable failover check box.

b. Click Apply. (Click OK if CLI preview is enabled.)

Step 3 Enter the failover key in the Shared Key field.

Step 4 Reenable failover.

a. Check the Enable failover check box.

b. Click Apply. (Click OK if CLI preview is enabled.) A dialog box about configuring the peer appears.

Step 5 Enter the IP address of the peer. Wait about 60 seconds. Even though the standby peer does not have the shared failover key, the standby peer still could become inaccessible.

Step 6 Click OK. Wait for configuration to be synchronized to the standby device over the encrypted failover connection.


Printing from ASDM

ASDM supports printing for the following features:

The Configuration > Interfaces table

All Configuration > Security Policy tables

All Configuration > NAT tables

The Monitoring > Connection Graphs and its related table

Unsupported Commands

ASDM does not support the complete command set of the CLI. In most cases, ASDM ignores unsupported commands, and they can remain in your configuration. In the case of the alias command, ASDM enters into Monitor-only mode until you remove the command from your configuration.

See the following sections for more information:

Effects of Unsupported Commands

Ignored and View-Only Commands

ASDM Limitations

ASDM Limitations

Effects of Unsupported Commands

If ASDM loads an existing running configuration and finds IPv6-related commands, ASDM displays a dialog box informing you that it does not support IPv6. You cannot configure any IPv6 commands in ASDM, but all other configuration is available.

If ASDM loads an existing running configuration and finds other unsupported commands, ASDM operation is unaffected. To view the unsupported commands, see Options > Show Commands Ignored by ASDM on Device.

If ASDM loads an existing running configuration and finds the alias command, it enters Monitor-only mode.

Monitor-only mode allows access to the following functions:

The Monitoring area

The CLI tool (Tools > Command Line Interface), which lets you use the CLI commands.

To exit Monitor-only mode, use the CLI tool or access the FWSM console, and remove the alias command. You can use outside NAT instead of the alias command. See the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and Cisco 7600 Series Router Firewall Services Module Command Reference for more information.


Note You might also be in Monitor-only mode because your user account privilege level, indicated in the status bar at the bottom of the main ASDM window, was set up as less than or equal to 3 by your system administrator, which allows Monitor-only mode. For more information, see Configuration > Device Administration > User Accounts and Configuration > Device Administration > AAA Access.


Ignored and View-Only Commands

The following table lists commands that ASDM supports in the configuration when added by the CLI, but that cannot be added or edited in ASDM. If ASDM ignores the command, it does not appear in the ASDM GUI at all. If it is view-only, then the command appears in the GUI, but you cannot edit it.

ASDM Limitations

ASDM does not support the one-time password (OTP) authentication mechanism.

Other CLI Limitations

ASDM does not support discontinuous subnet masks such as 255.255.0.255. For example, you cannot use the following:

ip address inside 192.168.2.1 255.255.0.255

The ASDM CLI tool does not support interactive user commands. ASDM provides a CLI tool (choose Tools > Command Line Interface) that lets you enter certain CLI commands from ASDM. The ASDM CLI tool does not support interactive user commands. You can configure most commands that require user interaction by means of the ASDM panels. If you enter a CLI command that requires interactive confirmation, ASDM prompts you to enter "[yes/no]" but does not recognize your input. ASDM then times out waiting for your response. For example, if you enter the crypto key generate rsa command, ASDM displays the following prompt and error:

Do you really want to replace them? [yes/no]:WARNING: You already have RSA 
ke0000000000000$A key
Input line must be less than 16 characters in length.

%Please answer 'yes' or 'no'.
Do you really want to replace them [yes/no]:

%ERROR: Timed out waiting for a response.
ERROR: Failed to create new RSA keys names <Default-RSA-key>

For commands that have a noconfirm option, use the noconfirm option when entering the CLI command. For example, enter the crypto key generate rsa noconfirm command.
