I'm not sure why this command doesn't work in one of my PIX-515 firewall. Tab also doesn't work.
I used to use this command on both PIX and ASA. Please advice
PIX-515# show interface ip brief
Usage: interface <hardware_id> [<hw_speed> [shutdown]]
[no] interface <hardware_id> <vlan_id> [logical|physical] [shutdown]
interface <hardware_id> change-vlan <old_vlan_id> <new_vlan_id>
Thanks in advance
Absolutely right, "tab" does not work either in the earlier version (6.x and below).
Unfortunately, with PIX older version, you need to check the output using 2 different commands:
-- show int | i interface e
-- show ip
-- show nameif
Hope that helps.
The "show int ip brief" command is only supported from version 7.0 forward. If you have older version of PIX, eg: version 6.x, then that command does not exist.
"show interface" will bring you the closest information on whether the interface is up or down, and "show ip" will give you a summary of the interfaces.
