Answered Question
Mar 25th, 2009

Hello,

I've just installed a new 100mb nic card, Part is "Cisco PIX-1FE and when the pix boots up, it seems to recognize it but says it's disabled.

Anyone know how to enable the new interface?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Cisco PIX Firewall

Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6.3(5)

Licensed Features:

Failover: Disabled

VPN-DES: Enabled

VPN-3DES-AES: Disabled

Maximum Physical Interfaces: 3

Maximum Interfaces: 5

Cut-through Proxy: Enabled

Guards: Enabled

URL-filtering: Enabled

Throughput: Unlimited

IKE peers: Unlimited

This PIX has a Restricted (R) license.

Additional 1 interface(s) is(are) disabled

Looks like I might need to buy the license for it? Is that correct?

I have this problem too.

Then you need unrestricted license or you could look at using 802.1q on one of your interfaces and have subinterfaces ie. note that maximum physical interfaces = 3 but maximum interfaces = 5.

Does the new card take the physical number of interfaces to 4 ?

If so then yes you need to get an unrestricted license.
