Our company has a Pix 501 and even though I installed it and configured it, I wouldn't say I know what I am doing. Please bear that in mind. :-)
I have two questions. One, while using the PDM to change the firewall's inside IP address, it seemed that I could nor longer log into the PDM. My question along that line is, do I have to change the HTTP server IP address on the PIX if I change the internal IP address. Originally, the internal IP was 192.168.1.1 and the HTTP server is listed as 192.168.1.0. If I change the internal to 192.168.2.1 does the HTTP server have to change to 192.168.2.0?
When I thought I had lost the ability to log into the PDM, I tried using Hyperterminal to access the Pix. I could not get any connection. No matter what com port configuration I tried, all I got was a blinking underscore cursor. What am I missing here? I was using a Windows 2000 Pro computer and Hyperterminal. I used a Cisco console cable connected to Comm port 1 and the other end was plugged into the Console port on the Pix. I started my HT session (9600, 8-N-1, Hardware) then turned on the Pix. Nothing! What should I have been doing to correctly access the Pix via HyperTerminal? Thanks!
