I'm not really experienced with the PIX firewalls, but I do have a good knowledge of the basic IOS for the routers/switches.
Anyway, I have a Pix 525 firewall that has its interfaces, etc. already set up with IPs. My one question is on how to access the PDM. I assume this is done through the web browser? I've been reading some conflicting documents. One says the PDM is already loaded into flash memory, another sort of indicates that it may have to be flashed via tftp first.
Could somebody shed some light on this? My config is as follows: IOS v.6.3
When I run 'setup' in global config, I have IP addresses for the outside/inside interfaces, however the field 'IP address of host running PIX Device Manager' is blank by default. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
same priciple from above applies for telnet access
pix(config)#telnet 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 inside
same principle for interface name by replacing
inside with proper nameif interface name.
just fyi..in pix code 6.x you cannot telnet to outside interface nor http but you can ssh from outside to pix outside interface.
in pix code 7.x and above you may telnet/ssh/and http from outside world to outside interface.
to access pix from browser, you may need to update Java pugins if you still cannot access the pix through browser, I don't have the link handy for IE java plug ins but will look for it in case you have problems just post your results.
for the inside interface you will need to configure that interface with IP address of your choice, once the inside interfac is configured make sure your PC is in the same subnet as pix inside subnet and try accessing it.
configure inside interface, I have not interact with your model but 500 series follow almost same interface type names, here is example to configure inside interface, the keyword nameif followed by ethernet1 inside that name inside can be anything you want most people use name inside.
Login to the FXOS chassis manager.
Direct your browser to https://hostname/, and log-in using the user-name and password.

We have configured the outside and inside Interface with official ipv6 adresses, set a default route on outside Interface to our router, we also have definied a rule , which also gets hits, to permit tcp from inside Interface to any6.
