Before you begin the installation, make sure that you have the following equipment:

  • ASA Chassis
  • AC Power Cable (& Supply with ASA 5506-X)
  • Ethernet Cable x 3
  • PC

Make sure that nothing is connected to the ASA and your PC settings are configured to use DHCP.

2. Connecting PC to ASA

Step1. Connect the AC power cable to the AC power connector of the ASA and a grounded AC outlet. The power turns on automatically when you plug in the power cable. There is no power button.Step2. Confirm that the POWER LED and STATUS LED are solid green. If the POWER LED is solid green, the device is powered on. After the STATUS LED is solid green, the system has passed power-on diagnostics.Step3. Connect the first Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port#1 of the ASA, and the other end of the cable to the Ethernet port of your WAN device. Wait until the port LEDs on the ASA and your WAN device are green or blinking green. Green LEDs indicate a successful connection.

Step4. Connect the second Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port #2 of the ASA, and the other end of the cable to the Ethernet port of your PC. Wait until the port LEDs on the ASA and your PC are green or blinking green. Green LEDs indicate a successful connection


Caution: At step2, if the STATUS LED does not turn solid green, or turns amber, the ASA failed the power-on diagnostics, reconnect the AC power cable to the ASA AC power connector and a grounded AC outlet. Nevertheless the STATUS LED does not turn solid green, or turns amber, contact your Cisco representative or reseller.

At step3 & 4, the ASA port to connect an Ethernet cable is the RJ-45 Ethernet port, not the RJ-45 management port. The RJ-45 Ethernet ports are numbered.
