PIX 515E upgrade problem

Hi

Problem1: I am trying to upgrade pix 515e from 6.3(1) to 8.0(4) version in monitor mode and I am not able to do that.

monitor>interface 1

address 192.168.16.250

server 192.168.16.20 (my laptop with tftp program on)

file pix804.bin

tftp

I get the below

monitor> tftp

tftp pix804.bin@192.168.16.20

TFTP failed (return:-1 arg:0x0)

Laptop to pix (no ping response)

Pix console to laptop (pin ok)

Pix console to pix interface 1 192.168.16.250 (no ping response)

I went through these forums and tried with different tftp programs (cisco tftp, 3cdaemon, pumpkin, tftpd32) and no luck.

problem2:

On show version, I see

This PIX has a Failover Only (FO) license.

Can this only be used with only active/failover config? What should I do if I want to use as a normal standalone firewall.

Please advise.

Re: PIX 515E upgrade problem

If you have no ping then you have a connectivity issue.. Try going through a switch to connect the PIX and PC, or verify the cross over cable

Re: PIX 515E upgrade problem

I checked both ways connecting through the switch and also with crossover. No luck. I wonder why its own interface is not pingable!

Any other opinions?

If not this how can I upgrade through the interface command. I have a hard time mentioning the right path. The file is on my desktop
