PIX 515

Hi ,

I am in the process of upgrading 2 nos PIX515E 6.3(3) [one is having UNRESTRICTED LICENSE and the other one is having FAILOVER License] to 7.0,While upgrading is it necessary to have new license key?

Please claify and help me.

Best Regards,


Re: PIX 515

You do not have to change any license keys when you upgrade.

You have to remember that is the firewalls are running in a fail over pair, when you upgrade 1 firewall the fail over sync will not work until the other firewall has also been upgraded.

Re: PIX 515

Dear Mr.Andrew,

May I take a oppurtunity to wish you a Very Happy New Year 2009 in the name of Almighy God our Lord Jesus Christ.

I am very much thankful for your valuable support.

Could you please guide from where I can download the Cisco Configmakerfor PIX and ASA?Which will help me to design and practise the configuration.

Waiting for your guidance.

Thanks and Regards,


Re: PIX 515

Currently as far as I know - there is no specific automated tool for the configuration of the PIX/ASA. You do have configuration wizards in the PIX/PDM and the ASA/ASDM.

Cisco provide plenty of configuration examples - see below link:-

Happy New Year.
