I am unable to download configs from our ASA 5540 firewall on NCM. NCM successfully polls the firewall using SNMP v2c; I wanted to use version 3, but it was not successful.
To pull the config files, I understand that the connection needs write access, which SNMP does not provide. I changed the "Connection Profile" settings so:
Execute Scripts Using: SSH1
Request Configs Using: SSH auto
Transfer Configs Using: TFTP
When I try to download the config, I get the error message "Connection Refused by *Firewall IP*"
I don't know if I should change some settings on NCM or if I need to change some settings on the ASA firwall through ASDM.
Ultimately, I want to set up automatic notification detection and download configs when it chanages, much like we do currently with our firewalls. I will also integrate the NCM profile info to send information to Firewall Security Manager.
