Re: cisco pix ios

nope... thei pix uses FOS not IOS

Finesse is different to IOS but the upgrade is similar.

some models will require an additional amount of RAM

to achieve the required upgrade.

Re: cisco pix ios

providing the pix needs to be upgraded is running a relatively new os, such as v5.1.1 or later. then the command "copy tftp flash" should do.

e.g.

pixfirewall#copy tftp flash

Address or name of remote host [127.0.0.1]? 172.18.125.3

Source file name [cdisk]?pix611.bin

copying tftp://172.18.125.3/pix611.bin to flash

[yes|no|again]?yes
