PIX 501 setting factory default

Unanswered Question
Jan 24th, 2009

What is the command for setting a PIX 501 to factory default settings, Version 6.2(2)?

The following command does not work.

pixfirewall(config)# configure factory-default 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.255

Specified IP address (192.168.1.1) is not allowed; it's a broadcast address.

I have this problem too.

if you are using /24 network command syntax should be:

configure factory-default 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

or you can do configure factory-default command alone and it will use 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 for your inside interface and automatically create DHCPD pool for you on inside interface.

Jorge,

Neither command seem to work.

pixfirewall(config)# configure factory-default

.

Cannot select private keyWarning: Start and End addresses overlap with broadcast

address.

outside interface address added to PAT pool

pixfirewall(config)# configure factory-default 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

Warning: Start and End addresses overlap with broadcast address.

never seen that before, use a different network address for sake of erasing the config, try 172.16.1.1 255.255.255.0 if success then do it for 192.168.1.1 /24 if not joy you may need to do write erase .

I assume you are doing it from local console

let me know if it worked out
