Anyone know if (and how) licenses between 2 identical Pix devices can be transferred to just one of them. My problem is that I have 2 Pix 501s.... one has VPN-3DES-AES enabled, but only 10 inside hosts allowed. The other has Unlimited inside hosts, but VPN-3DES-AES disabled. I'm learning the license details the hard way as I bought the second Pix (unlimited users) because 10 users was insufficient. I guess I did a bad thing and assumed that the 3DES license was included in the second one. Is there a way to combine the licenses? I have no purchase order or "official" Cisco documentation (both were purchased used), but I am trying to find a legitimate solution to the licensing problem here. Thanks for any help!
Jorge, thanks for the earlier advice. As you can see I did purchase another Pix off ebay, but neglected to consider the 3DES factor. I will upgrade in the future to the ASA 5505 or 5510 model, when funding allows. Would the ASA model allow traffic to move any faster than the Pix?
You can download the 3DES-AES license from the following:
(Choose: Cisco PIX Security Appliance 3DES/AES License)
Compared PIX and ASA firewall, PIX is older technology and it's getting EOL:
The replacement for PIX firewall is ASA, and here is the different models for your reference:
