We are getting some mixed signals from our resellers concerning PIX 3DES upgrades for a 515-UR & 515-FA set-up. Basically we were informed that we only needed to purchase a 3DES upgrade for the main PIX (515UR), while the backup could continue to have DES.
Subsequently we have found that when the fail-over unit comes online, 3DES support disapears.
So now it looks like we need to purchase a upgrade license for the FA PIX. The question then becomes "What is the part number to purchase this?"
From the parts list I have it appears that:
PIX-VPN-3DES= 168-bit 3DES VPN feature license for PIX Firewall
YES..you need to buy PIX-VPN-3DES= to get 3DES VPN feature license key for PIX Firewall.
Ideally you need to send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the serail number of PIX, version of software on pix, and company information and request to have a 3DES license key for PIX. They will be able to assis you for that.
