The 5063 only goes upto IOS ver 6.4 - which as far as I understand does not support SSL VPN's. You have to purchase the ASA55xx to get that functionality, even when you do - you only get 2 free SSL simultanious connections. if you want more that an you have to purchase them.

Thanks andrew for your response,

so there is no way to enable SSL VPN on my existing firewall.

Secondly,right now i'm managing the firewall thru telnet, is there any application/software so that i can manage it thru windows base? if yes can you please provide the link so that i can download it.

Thanks once again.

Sadly no - you cannot have SSL VPN on your firewall.

You can manage your PIX thru a GUI tool called the PDM - PIX Device Manager or ASDM - Adaptive Security Device Manager.

It should already be in your firewall, just enable it:-

http server enable

http x.x.x.x y.y.y.y inside

x.x.x.x y.y.y.y = the IP subnet you want to manage the device by.
