Getting to know my PIX 515E

Hi all,

I inherited 2 production PIX 515E and even though I use them regularly for a few daily operations I dont really know that much more about these systems.

What would be the best way for a newbie to get down and dirty (creating rules, firewalling principles, log analysis and such) with the 515E?

Thanx all.

Re: Getting to know my PIX 515E

find out which version OS is installed, and read the documentation and/or buy a book.

while reading, keep the config handy and try to understand why things were configured the way they are.

Use the 'show' commands extensively while learning. Make few changes while learning though, as you may not understand the full impact of even the slightest change.

and one more thing: BACKUP the config!
