Ensuring that PDM is installed

I am at a customer site looking at a PIX config. there are many statements all over the config about PDM, including statements which fundamentally allow different networks and hosts to connect to the PDM engine resident in flash.

I performed a sho flashfs: on the box, and the output was this:

s1fwmci00# sho flashfs

flash file system: version:3 magic:0x12345679

file 0: origin: 0 length:1978424

file 1: origin: 2097152 length:20250

file 2: origin: 2228224 length:1922

file 3: origin: 2359296 length:4539600

file 4: origin: 0 length:0

file 5: origin: 8257536 length:308

s1fwmci00#

How can i tell if PDM is installed?

Thanks!

Re: Ensuring that PDM is installed

The following partition says if PDM is installed or not-

file 3: origin: 2359296 length:4539600

However, a better way to ensure if PDM is installed is using the "show version" command. It should show something like this at the top-

PIX> sh ver

Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6.3(5)

Cisco PIX Device Manager Version 3.0(4)

The commands which allow access to the PDM are-

http server enabled (To enable web server)

0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 inside (This command allows everyone on inside network to connect to PDM)

Hope that helps.

Re: Ensuring that PDM is installed

That helped some. I did have http enabled already; and I actually have the config statement, "pdm location 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 inside" on the box.

I did a "sho ver" ,and I see:

Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6.3(5)

Cisco PIX Device Manager Version 2.0(2)

I am trying to connect using:

https://(device_inside_IP)

is this correct??

Hi K,

do you have in your config this?

http 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 inside

Re: Ensuring that PDM is installed

That is correct. Also, I would recommend updating your PDM version to 3.0(4) or newer.

Hey ..

Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6.3(5)

Cisco PIX Device Manager Version 2.0(2)

You dont have a compatible PDM version on your PIX. For OS versions 6.x, you need to have version x.y on your PIX. So table is like this-

OS -- PDM

6.1.x -- 1.x

6.2.x -- 2.x

6.3.x -- 3.x

Please upgrade PDM to 3.0.4.

Vibhor.
