Difference between PIX-515E and PIX-515-R-BUN


That might be a very silly question.

We have ordered PIX515-R-BUN however when I run show version command on our PIX it shows that it’s a PIX515E. I will appreciate someone can advice whats the difference between both of the mentioned models of PIX.

Second question; is their any Cisco webpage where I can give product serial # and it will display the complete details of the product.

Re: Difference between PIX-515E and PIX-515-R-BUN

The 515E is the newer version of the 515. The PIX515-R-BUN you purchased just means a 515 with a restricted licence. 515's are no longer being shipped, so you now get a 515E which is faster, stronger, better than the 515.


As for the web page, I don't believe there's one, but the "sho ver" output you have above gives you what hardware you have (515E with two interfaces, 32Mb RAM and 16Mb Flash), what software features you're licenced for. Not much more to tell.

additional question.

If I have PIX515 and order PIX515 failover bundle I will get a PIX515E, will failover work and is this supported?


Re: Difference between PIX-515E and PIX-515-R-BUN

No, you can't do failover to unlike models. Read the documentation on the 515e.\
