Pix 515 PDM issue

We have just recently aquired a 515 and have loaded the latest code rev's for ios and PDM however on the bench the laptop we are connecting to the inside does not run up PDM it just shows page cannot be displayed.

we have used the default wizard to set it up and installed the Java client on the laptop which works with our other Pix's

Can anyone give me a rundown of likely issues so that I can try them as I am at a loss.

Many thanks

Re: Pix 515 PDM issue

Issue this commands and see if this will help:

ca zero rsa

ca gen rsa key 512

This should regenerate the rsa public/private key

Re: Pix 515 PDM issue

Many thanks however that did not help, what is the least amount of config required to get the pix pdm working as I can blow the config down to it's least.

Re: Pix 515 PDM issue

make sure you are connecting to HTTPS://PIX-IP and not HTTP://PIX-IP

i used to have a bad habit of initially trying to log in using plain old http. its wrapped in ssl.

also try these:

http server enable

pdm history

Re: Pix 515 PDM issue

Definately make sure you are using https://w.x.y.z to login. There are some browser cache issues with IE that have caused problems. Also if you are running any software that "blocks" pop-ups it will probably stop the first screen in PDM from coming up, Some "blocking" software see PDM as a pop-up.

Make sure you have



the source IP Address of the PC you are accessing the PIX/PDM from.

A,B.C.D inside (or outside)

Without a source, you probably won't get there.
