Our company has an old PIX 515 sitting around. The OS was 4.x and I upgraded to 6.35 fine. I am able to connect from the PIX to the TFTP through monitor mode fine....
It's when I try and upgrade from 6.35 to 7 I have the problem. After you install the OS you have to 'copy TFTP flash' over to the PIX flash because the OS is just running on RAM. This is where I can't get a working connection. I can not ping/connect to my TFTP server!
I have checked everything many times. There is a IP assigned to the interface, a name, a security number, a static route. There is a physical connection but that is all, no ping or transfers.
I have tried both interfaces, changing the speeds & duplex's on both the PIX and TFTP (the TFTP will only pick up auto), cables and computers the TFTP is on. I know it's probably something very simple but I keep missing it. Any ideas??? Also keep in mind monitor mode works fine. The PIX is directly connected to the PC. Thanks
