I recently purchased a used PIX 501 only to find that it does not have the PDM software. It is running OS ver 6.1, but when typing in https: I can not get to the PDM but I am able to ping the IP address. ANy suggestions on where to get the PDM software and how to install it would be greatly appreciated.

Ensure that you have a Cisco Connection Online (CCO) account. You need a CCO username and password to download PDM software. If you do not have a CCO account, go to and enter the information requested.
