IE 6 sp1 problem accessing PDM !

I've just recently upgraded to IE 6 sp1. Since doing so I can not connect to my Pix 506 via PDM.

It prompts about the certificate, I say ok, and then prompts for my user name and password, of which I supply.

A new window pops up but it is a white IE error screen that says "Cannot Find Server" acrross the top

The PDM window saying not to "Close This Window" is behind the error window.

It worked two days ago, prior to the IE upgrade though.

Anyone else seen this? and better yet know how to get around it.

Thanks in advance,

What version of PDM are you running? Version 1 did not support IE 6. Version 2 does.

hope this helps,

It is version 1.1. That explains it!

Where can I get version 2?

You can dowload the software from Software Centre on CCO if your pix is covered under a contract and you have access to download software:

Keep in mind that version 2.1 of PDM is supported with PIX Firewall OS 6.2.
