PIX 506 - Limited Throughput ?

Hi

I recently found a use for an old PIX 506 that I found in our store cupboard.

After doing a 'show ver' I noticed that although the number of internal hosts was unrestricted, the throughout is 'limited'. The outside ethernet is registering as 10/half.

Can anyone please tell me what the limitation is ? Is it just the difference between 10 and 100 Mbps ?

Re: PIX 506 - Limited Throughput ?

You are right. PIX-506 will always be at limited throughput as it does not have a Fast ethernet interface. If you use a PIX-506E which comes with fastethernet interfaces, you'll get unlimited throughput.

Hope that answers your concern.

Vibhor.
