 Issue: How to access asdm or telnet when connected via VPN

Affects: Cisco ASA 5505

Solutions to the issue:

if you are connected via a cisco VPN, you won’t be able to telnet to the ASA or access it via asdm by default

to enable access:

– type the following command: management-access inside

– in the asdm GUI go to configuration; properties; access-management and enable access-management

you can now VPN to a client’s network and access the ASA via telnet or ASDM
