I'm relativly new to the world of cisco so my appologies in advance if my question is lame, or in the wrong place.
Question is this.. About to purchase a PIX-515E with a limited license to serve as the primary Firewall/NAT device for an upcomming project. However, the PIX only has 2 physical interfaces, and a license for 3 physical interfaces. If I purchase a PIX-4FE(4port 10/100), will I only be able to use one of the ports? If this is the case can you please advise as to what kind of license I need to be able to utilized all 6(2+4) interfaces.
reference this link for licenses types in table-3, your asumption is correct, if your firewall holds a R (Restricted license ) you will only be able to use one more interface of the 4 port PIX-4FE card you want to install in PIX. If your firewall currently have the R license this license seen by output of "show version " the Part number is PIX-515E-R-DMZ-BUN, in order for you to fully use the remaining 3 ports you will need a UR license part number PIX-515E-UR-FE-BUN
