Hi all

any idea why my pix will allow me to display a capture in plain text but will not convert to pcap for download ?

doing https://fwall_ip/capture/cap_name shows everything fine in a browser.

Trying https://fwall_ip/capture/cap_name/pcap pops up a download window which always states 'IE unable to download this file'

I'm allowing https to my inside nic on the pix, and have pdm installed with des enabled.

By default, the PIX Firewall denies access to an internal or perimeter (more secure) network from an external (less secure) network. You specifically allow inbound connections by using access lists. Access lists work on a first-match basis, so for inbound access, you must deny first and then permit after.

Refer to Enabling Inbound Connections section for more information
