Hi,


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>
        show interface

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.

Thanks again halijenn,


I guess "tab" function doesn't work as well in this function rite?


In this case, I'll use sh int | i interface e to view the status of interfaces for this version of PIX...  Pls let me know if there is any other useful command to view interface status and ip address at the same time just like "sh int ip br"

PIX-515# sh int | i interface e
interface ethernet0 "outside" is up, line protocol is up
interface ethernet1 "inside" is up, line protocol is up
interface ethernet2 "failover" is up, line protocol is up
interface ethernet3 "unused-1" is administratively down, line protocol is up
interface ethernet4 "unused-2" is administratively down, line protocol is up
interface ethernet5 "unused-3" is administratively down, line protocol is up
PIX-515#

Thanks
