You can use the Pix Device Manager (PDM) which is a web based GUI interface for configuring a pix.

Attached is a link to the PDM page where you can find an overview and Installation/Configuration links.

You need to initially console to the PIX

to configure the inside interface and enable http in order to load the PMD(GUI interface).

For that this is what needs to be done to get you up and running with PDM

1-Console to PIX enable mode , config terminal

2- Configure the enable password

enable password password1

3-Enable http server services on PIX

http server enable

4-Configure IP address for the inside interface


ip address inside

5- Allow http access to the pix for any system on subnet


http inside

or allow any inside host as http inside

6- Allow Telnet access to the pix , same as step 5 but replace http with telnet

Configure your PC TCPIP settings as :



DG: ( This is your inside PIX interface IP) or leave it blank if in same segment.

Connect your PIX and PC in a hub, if using a switch make sure you're in the same

segment as the pix.

Once both are connected make sure you can ping the pix to ensure IP connectivity.

Then load your web browser and type:

here are couple of good links for starters:
