Have you generated the required RSA key for the PIX to use and support SSL connections for PDM from your browser ?

If not, Do the following,

To generate a RSA key to allow you to connect to the to the PIX. (You must have a domain name configured, because the RSA generation process, uses the hostname and domain during the key creation)

ca generate rsa key 2048

ca save all

This will take a while..... and impact PIX performance.

Hope that helps.

Is it possible for me remove this settings now ?

What is the use of the command "ca zeroize rsa" ?

Does your browser support 128-bit encryption? Your " help about" on your browser should tell you the cypher strength.
