Hi Sjose

You don't really have feature sets as such with Pix506E. You just need to buy a pix 506E and then you can have a free upgrade to a 3DES license which involves obtaining a key from the Cisco web site and loading it onto the pix. Or you can order the pix 506E with a 3DES license on it.

From the cisco web site


Table 2 lists ordering information for the Cisco PIX 506E security appliances and related products.
