I manage a seried of Linux servers and we have has a number of successfull DOS attacks recently (SYN_FLOOD). The guys I co-locate with do not know enough about the CISCO equipment to configure measures against this.
Therefore they have given me the login to the Cisco PIX506E which is between me and the Internet.
Although I have read up how to configure things at the command line level I would like to use a GUI.
I tried to download management software from the Cisco website but I keep being blocked - therefore my question is (a) is this software free i.e. can I download it? (b) how do I get unblocked, (c) or where can I buy it if there is a pricing issue.
Also one other question : My office is on the outside of the firewall - is it possible (advisable) to enable the web software whcih I assume is built into the PIX for use from my location. All the documentation in the manuals referes to enabling the web interface towrds the "inside". I have other linux servers on the inside but I cannot get a browser to connect from ther without sitting in the server room.
I hope you can help me out
