Software for PIX 506E

Hi,

i´m quite a newbie to PIX, normally i work with Switches or routers!

I´ve got some CISCO PIX 506E with Version 6.3(5).

Some of them have to be downgraded to the PIX Version 6.3(3) and 6.3(1).
I  already searched the web, and cisco.com but found nothing helpfully.  Could someone help me, where i can download these software-versions and downgrade  my PIX?

thanks in advance!

Please kindly be advised that PIX version 6.3 is already End Of Life as per the following:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/vpndevc/ps5708/ps5709/ps2030/end_of_life_notice_for_cisco_pix_sec_app_v63.html

To obtain PIX version 6.3.3 and 6.3.1 software, please kindly open a TAC case.

BTW, out of curiosity, why do you need to downgrade to 6.3.3 and 6.3.1 as those were very early release, and 6.3.5 would have more bug fixes than the earlier verison.

Re: Software for PIX 506E

Hi,

i have some 506 with 6.3.5, 6.3.3 and 6.3.1 - the config is accepted and approved from our "technical inspection" (inc. cryptochecksum).

As the product is discontinued and we got some "old" PIX´s at stock my boss desided, that we have to configure a "clone" for every PIX.

In case of an error the pix can immediatly be replaced & and we have not to apply the changes from the "technical inspection" !!

However i have to change the systems to new asa equipment with new config ... but we think it will take some time till its accepted and approved !

(sorry my english is poor....)

Re: Software for PIX 506E

The configuration would be exactly the same between version 6.3.5 and the previous 2 versions. More than likely you will only find software bugs if you are hitting any technical problems, so downgrading it to earlier version might not have helped.

But if you need the earlier versions, please open a TAC case, and the engineer can publish you the older versions.
