Actually ,i have 2 PIXs 515 and 535.PIX 515 is configured for VPN tunnels and many encrypted passwords are configured on it. All the tunnels were up.After trying to copy the config. from 515 device to 535 , i observed that all tunnels are still up and all the passwords can be used properly.I thought that the passwords doesnot work after copying the config. on pix 535.

So what is the reason for that????

waiting your replies

best regards

How did you copy the config to the PIX 535, through TFTP?

Or was it a copy and paste job from the PIX 515 by issuing the command "sh config"

If so, I would like to see the "sh config" output. (without editing except the IP address of the remote peer).
