if it is really deleted from FLASH, you will need to connect to ASA with a console cable, start up TFTP server on your pc, and in TFTP copy your ASA image file (.bin - on your CD that you got with ASA) so that you can get it from pc to asa.
then use tftpdnld command to set all the parameters on asa and start the download of the file from your pc .... after it has been done - just reboot asa :)

Use a web browser and point it to the private IP address of the ASA. Download ASDM and run through the wizards.

Good Luck!

It is not possible to block the BitTorrent protocol, as the client applications have the ability to use different port numbers.  I suggest one of the following courses of actions:
1)  Added deny entries to your outbound access-list that block the specific IP addresses of the torrent trackers.  For example: tracker.thepiratebay.org =
tv.tracker.thepiratebay.org =
tracker.mininova.org =

2)  Re-configure your outbound access-lists to allow only services required for business activities.  For example, allow only http, https, and ftp, instant messaging from all your network.  Allow only dns from your DNS servers.  Allow only smtp from your mail server.

PPPoE is not supported when failover is configured on the security appliance, or in multiple context or transparent mode. PPPoE is only supported in single, routed mode, without failover.

You seem to have the last resort (o.o.o.o) set to VLAN1 which is set as an inside interface.
Is VLAN1 connected to the outside router or internet backbone?
If not, change the last resort to the outside Ethernet port.

This is for the pixes, I haven't upgraded an asa yet...should be close or the same

* find latest version of code, these are usually *.bin files located on http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/pix
* confirm the flash and RAM requirements of the PIX OS software versus what the PIX has (”sho ver”)
* make sure you have a backup of the old PIX OS and PDM to the tftp server (or at least confirm the software is there)
Note: You cannot back them up from the PIX, so you will need to download them and put them on the tftp server * put in a change control form
* once change controls confirms date/time do the upgrade:
wri mem*** only if you save your configs via tftp wri net conf t ca save all copy tftp://your tftp server ip/pix635.bin flash:imageskip this if you don't use pdm copy tftp://your tftp server ip/pdm-304.bin flash:pdm *** if this is a failover pair, upgrade the other pair reboot

If I understand you right, you want to setup a ASA firewall.( VSNL broadband is a company in India I believe) but once you get a static IP
you can assign that ip address to the outside of your asa. Put your dsl
router in pass through mode. This will then allow you to nat your inside
network and for you to accept vpn requests. To set all this up you need to get documentation from Cisco.
