I figured out the problem I was having as stated above:
I connected through my switch on the network via the WAN port on the firewall. Then set the interface as 0 instead of the default of 1. then I was able to get a ping reply but it would hang after the tftp transfer finished and the file started loading.
Your question about my use of "BIOS" made me think, so I went back and lookef through the hundreds of lines of output I saved in a text file.
Sure enough, I did mean BIOS, but there was a line that displayed only twice which read "Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6.3(4) " So I downloaded and followed the same instructions using np63.bin instead of nppix.bin and sure enough everything went well, the file loaded and as described in the instructions.
When I get the opprotunity, I will post on the success of verfying that it was successful.
As I said in a reply earlier today, I was able to get the procedure to go as it should and get the file to reload and reset the passwords.
After attempting to verify, I have prematurely marked my problem as solved. I still cannot get into Cisco PIX Device Manager on the web interface. what should I be using as a default username and Password?
Login to the FXOS chassis manager.
Direct your browser to https://hostname/, and log-in using the user-name and password.
