I am in a job where expansion has happened quickly, and we are in the process of upgrading our network, and with time constraints etc we are forced to use internal heads to figure things out.
We know we have to upgrade our internal equipment and one thing is a firewall. Now our intentions are to create a position to take on this responsibility, but in the meantime I just (cause I got appointed to the position) want to understand the workings of a PIX firewall, so I picked up a "testing" one on eBay, and am wondering, after a bit of research...
1) Can this be upgraded to new firmware/software.. it has 32mb in it, its restricted.
2) I notice that all the downloads for firmware are username/password secured, am I just having difficulty logging in (cause it always says "Log In" at the top of the page), or is some kind of membership/service contract required?
Again, this is not being put into production, it was more to jsut familiarize myself with the appliance, so we dint look like a deer in headlights when we bring our new person in.
