Recommended version for PIX upgrade

Hi

I have multiple PIXs, all with version 6.3(3) or 6.3(5)

I need to upgrade them to a newer version, which one is more recommended to go for, 7.2(4) or 8.0(4)

Regards,

Re: Recommended version for PIX upgrade

If you are staying with a PIX platform and are running an appreciable amount of traffic through the PIX, I would probably stay in the 7.2(x) train - upgrading to the latest release in that train.  7.2 codes seems to run a little faster in that platform and has better memory management.  If you require a particular feature in 8.0, if your firewall is not currently running a large amount of traffic, 8.0 should also run reasonably well.

If this addresses your question, please be sure to mark this thread as 'answered' for others' benefit.

Best Regards,

Kevin
