Just a couple of simple and quick questions for you. I have in my test use a PIX 515 and I noticed its out of date model that didnt even have info on it on Ciscos site (that i could find).

Is the only major difference between these 2 devices that PIX 515E is a enhanced version of the normal model when it comes to hardware specs?

If so does anyone of you know any good reviews/description (other than Ciscos own) of this model of PIX firewall that you could provide link for?

Do these 2 have any difference on the services that they provide?

Any help is appriciated

Thank you for the quick response!

I guess thats enough information on how the 2 devices vary from eachother.

Reason i asked this was that im currently doing my final work at school about small to medium sized company networks. I guess these networking devices are really out of date already. (Catalyst 3550 switch and Cisco PIX 515)

Though i guess the same things in these can be easily applied to the newer models on the market while also getting more addiotional services from the new models.

Thanks again,
