PIX 506E virtual interface

I have PIX 506E with version 6.3(1). I'm creating virtual interface on this but getting following error:


[ERR]interface ethernet1 vlan13 logical

Interface limit (2) reached.

Unable to create logical interface.

Internal Error: Unable to initialize logical interface.

[ERR]nameif vlan13 virt security99

For physical interace, please use hardware_id as specified in

interface command, instead of vlan_id. E.g. ethernet0, ethernet1 etc.

[ERR]ip address virt

Command failed


VLAN we already creted on cisco switch. do I need add anything on switch or firewall


Re: PIX 506E virtual interface

Hi ... unfortuantely my friend logical interfaces are not supported on your platform.

Cisco Secure PIX Model Total Interfaces Physical Interfaces Logical Interfaces

501 2 2 Not supported

506E 2 2 Not supported

515E 10 6 8

525 12 8 10

535 24 10 22

NOTE VLANs are not supported on the PIX 501 and PIX 506/506E.

I hope it helps ... please rate it if it does !!!

Re: PIX 506E virtual interface

main problem is solved by upgrading to 6.3(5) version. PIx 506E supports Virtual Interface. Now I am facing routing problem:

[1] Pix default inside int is 192.168.101

[2] Pix virtual int is now 192.168.102..

I am not able to ping 192.168.102 from my machine(192.168.101.)
