Upgrading from 6.1 to 6.3 wouldn't have any configuration changes.

1) Save the config to tftp server

pixfirewall# write net "ip add":pixconfig

2) Copy the bin file frm tftp to pix

pixfirewall#copy tftp flash

Address or name of remote host []? "IP add of tftp server"

Source file name [cdisk]? pix635.bin

3) reload the pix


if failover is configured on the box.

use #no failover

upgrade on pri, secondary unit

after upgrading on both units issue #failover

i need to know how to convert the configuration file :

for example,

  conduit permit tcp host x.x.x.x eq www any

to be aplicable on 6.3(5)
