PIX515E upgrade problem

Unanswered Question
Apr 22nd, 2009


Problem1: I am trying to upgrade pix 515e from 6.3(1) to 8.0(4) version in monitor mode and I am not able to do that.

monitor>interface 1


server (my laptop with tftp program on)

file pix804.bin


I get the below

monitor> tftp

tftp [email protected]

TFTP failed (return:-1 arg:0x0)

Laptop to pix (no ping response)

Pix console to laptop (pin ok)

Pix console to pix interface 1 (no ping response)

I went through these forums and tried with different tftp programs (cisco tftp, 3cdaemon, pumpkin, tftpd32) and no luck.


On show version, I see

This PIX has a Failover Only (FO) license.

Can this only be used with only active/failover config? What should I do if I want to use as a normal standalone firewall.

Please advise.

I have this problem too.
