ASDM on Mac

This is mainly a little note for myself. I don't tend to use the ASDM to manage ASAs very often, but sometimes you just need a visual representation to wrap your head around something (I'm looking at you, NAT statements). Anyway, I tried to run it on my Mac 10.7.5 and got an error that I needed to install Java. Of course, I already have Java installed and the super useful link for more info simply took me to the Java download site. I found a pretty cool workaround online though. You can launch the ASDM directly from the command line:

javaws https://ip_address/admin/public/asdm.jnlp

Very cool little trick and very useful.
