pixfirewall(config)# tftp-server

pixfirewall(config)# config net :

Please refer the below URL for details:

configure net

The configure net command merges the current running configuration with a TFTP configuration stored at the IP address you specify and from the file you name. If you specify both the IP address and path name in the tftp-server command, you can specify server_ip :filename as simply a colon ( : ).

For example:

configure net :

would anyone happen to know how to reset the pix to factory defaults, in the command line interface?

For the PIX 501 and PIX 506/506E only:

configure factory-default [inside_ip_address [address_mask]]

factory-default - Specifies to clear the current configuration and regenerate the default, factory-loaded configuration. This command is supported for the PIX 501 and PIX 506/506E only in PIX Firewall software Version 6.2.

Please refer the URL I had posted earlier for details.
