HTTP 502 Proxy Error While accessing Cisco ASDM

Are you getting the following error while accessing ASDM from your Client machine that is behind your corporate Firewal (TMG-2010)?
Unable to Launch ASDM from 172.16.1.1 (IP Address)
Unable to tunnel through proxy. Proxy returns “HTTP/1.1 502 Proxy Erro (Forefron TMG denied the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL).”
So the actual restriction is in TMG 2010 and the connection is denied to the ASDM by TMG Default Rule, if your TMG Firewall is not configured to to access internal/external IP at which that ASA/PIX ASDM resides.
Suppose if your ASA/PIX firewall is on internal/inside network and in TMG you have created Web Access Rules so that it only allows connections from Internal to External Networks than connection from your Internal Clients to ASA/PIX can be denied by Default Web Access Rule of TMG 2010.
Either you can allow from Internal to Internal+External or You need to put exception in Allow Web access rule so that the connection from your internal networks is allowed.
Allowing all connections from internal to all internal and external networks is simpler, here I tell you how to put exceptions if your company doesn’t wants allow all connections.
For putting exception, you need to create a URL Set and Put it in allowed Exception Ruel.
Right Click Allow Web Access Rule > Properties > Select tab TO > Click ADD > Click URL Set > Click New
In the New URL Set Windows create the URL set as shown in the snap Below and give it any name, I Named it ASDM, when finished Click OK.
Once the URL Set is Created, Click Add Button to add this URL Set into the allowed destinations box.
Click OK and Apply the Changes in TMG and and Play with ASDM error Free.
Please mention if this worked for you..

Connection control operation failed for disk 'ide1:0'

I was getting this error while removing Operating System ISO image mounted on the Virtual Machine.

What worked for me, is
1. Uncheck the "Connected and Connect at power on" from Device Status.
2. Then Change the Device type from "Datastore ISO File to Client Device" Radio Button
3. and press OK to save the changes.

Note:- I was able to remove the mounted ISO only by directly logging to the ESXi at https://esxi-ip-address/ui

where it asks

"The guest operating system has locked the CD-ROM door and is probably using the CD-ROM, which can prevent the guest from recognizing media changes. If possible, eject the CD-ROM from inside the guest before disconnecting. Disconnect anyway and override the lock?"

You need to select yes to eject the CD-ROM and then remove the ISO file successfully.

a file I/O error has occurred while accessing vmware converter

While converting physical Windows 7 machine to Virtual machine of infrastructure type, I got this error. The error seems it is unable to read/write source or destination datastore.

I have installed VMware-converter-en-6.2.0-8466193 on Windows 7 physical machine with option locally selected. (not at server/client option)

All of my ESXi servers are connected to the vCenter Server, so I had to use vCenter Server's IP address to send this physical machine to the virtual world.

The issue i found was with the dns resolution to the vCenter Server's hostname. Since I am not using the same dns server on the Windows 7 client machine. So I updated the host entries manually for the vCenter Server's hosname to it IP address.

After adding dns eteries to the hostfile of windows 7, I am not getting this "a file I/O error has occurred while accessing vmware converter" and the migration has started.

How to import Putty Saved Connections to mRemoteNG

Just started using mRemoteNG and its being very cool to connect to different remote connection with different protocols e.g Window Remote Desktop, VNC to Linux, SSH, HTTP connection etc. from a single application.

As new user I configured some remote desktop connection which was quite easy to figure out. But when I wanted to add SSH connections, it came in my mind to import all of the saved connections in the putty. But I couldn't figure it out how can it be done, though it was quite easy and here are the steps.


Open your mRemoteNGCreate a folder if you want segregation of multiple networksCreate a new connectionEnter the IP address of remote server under connection in Config paneUnder the config pane, select protocol "SSH version 2".  Once you select protocol to SSH version 2 you are given option to import putty sessions, as shown in the snap below.


In the above snap, I have imported CSR-AWS session from my saved sessions in Putty.
