hi Boris, if you console to the pix you should be able to retreave the running version code without going to the privilege mode.

515EPIX>show version

Thanks Jorge, you mean type show version in monitor mon>

I am not sure when I connected to PIX firewall by console cable, it show input password screen, I cannot type show version

Re: Recovery privilege mode password for Cisco PIX 515E

so when you connect to pix console port using heypertermimal you get a enter password prompt ? if so then console access is password.. please confirm if this is the case .. and we'll seak a different plan to get the code version on your pix.

Hi Boris,

I cannot recall if by rebooting you will see the code, it is possible you can, however I believe if you reboot and brake the boot sequence into rommon> you will be able to issue DIR command as Dharmesh indicated to see flash directory files.
