PIX 515E-R with VPN Accelerator?

I have a PIX-515E-R-DMZ-BUN that displays the following when I type show version:

Hardware: PIX-515E, 32 MB RAM, CPU Pentium II 433 MHz

Flash E28F128J3 @ 0x300, 16MB

BIOS Flash AM29F400B @ 0xfffd8000, 32KB

Encryption hardware device : IRE2141 with 2048KB, HW:1.0, CGXROM:1.9, FW:6.5

Does the last line mean that it has the encryption card (PIX-VPN-ACCEL) installed? If so, how can I tell if it's enabled?

Yes you have it in there. There's no real way to tell it's enabled, it runs all the time, the fact that the PIX is seeing it OK (from the "sho ver" output) means it's working OK.

Thanks for the reply.

My next question is how did it get in there? The reseller claims they didn't add it and that it came straight from Cisco, and the price paid was definitely not for a UR version.

From what I understand the new PIX 515E comes witht he VPN accel card built in.
