Re: MARS 6.0 cant discover PIX 8.0(4)

Ping successfull?

Please some attention to SSH configuration in PIX.

Re: MARS 6.0 cant discover PIX 8.0(4)

I cant ping from mars pix, and vice versa.

I've attached pix configuration on mars, ssh config on the mars

On the pix i created rsa 1024 bit, cause mars do not accept rsa lower than 1024, as i understood from the literature

Re: MARS 6.0 cant discover PIX 8.0(4)

If you can't ping the MARS from the PIX and vice versa, it is more L1/L2/L3 issue. Are you sure it is connected to the same VLAN in the switch? What is the ip address of MARS, and the PIX management interface? Also, make sure the ip address is not duplicate.

Re: MARS 6.0 cant discover PIX 8.0(4)

They are not duplicated

mars -

pix -

the same vlan

I think the problem with CBAC on PIX, or with ACL, may be i need to allow icmp packets ?

Re: MARS 6.0 cant discover PIX 8.0(4)

Try login to Cisco MARS into CLI


try to login to PIX by SSH.

Config of PIX is seamed correct.

Configure switch with IP address in same vlan as PIX and MARS and try ping switch from mars  and switch from PIX
