Is there any alternative to console cable for pix 501 firewall?

Hi,

Have you considered getting an USB adapter for the Console cable?

I had to get that for my first work laptop since they happened to order a model without the serial port. For the most part it worked just fine.

I guess depending on your PIX configurations you might be able to boot it up and attach a PC directly to it and manage it.
