Hi Karuna,

To degrade you may need the activation key( I used the free 56-bit VPN-DES activation key). Link

If you are using pix 515e here are the commands:

1. int e0 //pc connects to e0 int

2. address //pix int ip add

3. server // tftp server ip add

4. file pix63.bin //image filename

5. tftp
