I voluntarily look after a simple MS Small Business Server 03 network at a charity and made the mistake of buying a Pix 501 to replace a basic firewall we had. I say mistake because if I would have know about the dreadful user manuals and tricky setup I would have never spent the money.
But now I am here and hope that someone can perhaps answer some questions on how I can set up the PIX 501.
1. Is it a good idea to use a PIX501 on a SBS03 network.
2. If so, do I use the DHCP from the server or the PIX 501.
3. I set up the Pix on a spare computer for testing (after I failed getting the server to access the PDM) and managed initially to access the PDM via the browser. After ?pocking? around though the DHCP stopped working (I probably turned it off) and as a consequence cant access the PDM anymore. I did a ?Reset Factory Settings? via command line (not something I am too familiar with) but it didn?t seem to have restored the DHCP server. Any thoughts.
Any help greatly appreciated.
