Recommendation needed for Pix OS upgrade path please
We have 2 x 525 with PIX Version 6.3(3)132. ASSUMING ver 8 is the "best" (ie most secure) version - do we need to upgrade to ver 7 first or can we go straight from 6.3 to 8 (subject to possible additional memory requirements)
Cisco.com appears to state that you need to go to 7 first - though this is unclear. Also I make the radical assumption that 8 is more secure and "better" than 7
Re: Recommendation needed for Pix OS upgrade path please
The minimum software version required before upgrading to PIX Version 8.0 is PIX Version 7.2.
The minimum software version required before performing an upgrade to PIX Version 7.2(2) is PIX Version 7.0. If you are running a PIX version prior to PIX Version 6.2, you must first upgrade to PIX Version 6.2 or PIX Version 6.3 before you can begin the upgrade to PIX Version 7.0.
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.
In Syslog I also se...
