Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Hi,

You'll need to enable http server on the PIX.

In config mode on PIX do:

> http server enable

> http 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 inside

(Ofcourse change the above IP to yours)

Now open up IE browser and type:

> https://

When you see the username and password box pop-up in IE browser just type the pix password (no need for username)

Hope this helps and Please rate this post if it helps you out.

Thanks -

can anyone advise on this please.

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Are you getting a pop-up window that ask if you want to install and run Cisco PIX device mananger? That is the next phase. If you are not seeing this it could be a permissions issue on your workstation or I have seen some pop-up blockers kill this as well.

Please remember to rate any post that helps you out.

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

The only thing that looks out of the ordinary is this startup certiticate message.Could this be the problem.

When i put in https://10.98.7.250 in the browser

it then comes up with the message below.

The information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others.

However there is a problem with the sites security certificate.

! The security certificate was issued by a company you have not chosen to trust

! The security certificate has expiredor is not yet valid.

! The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site.

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Do you have a DES or 3DES key installed on you PIX. This key is required for PDM. If do not have this key Cisco will provide you with a new DES key for free. You will find this information with "show version" command.

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Ward,

You should check on CCO on the supported browsers and the requirements of your browser. Sounds to me like not having a correct encryption level, some old version browser or java runtime environment. Check these things first before checking anything else.

You are using no username and the enable secret as the password on the PDM authentication popup?

You do have configured an enable secret. Otherwise I think PDM won´t be able to authenticate.

If all this is not of any help, there´s one other thing you could try, and that is regenerating the rsa key. There should be a procedure described on CCO, otherwise search the frum within this group, cause a few months ago the procedure was posted here. But regenerating the rsa key is rarely needed, so, I advise you to first check on the other things mentioned.

Good luck and kind regards,

Leo

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Can anybody help with this?

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Ward,

First I want to state that next time when you post your config, it would be better to remove the passwords..., allthough they are encrypted, the encryption is weak, and there are tools available to break them..... (but don´t worry, normally the moderators of this forum will edit your meaasge soon)

This said I have a few questions for you?

Have you tried just entering the enable password with no username (on the username/password box which is prompted)?

If not, please do so. This will give you access to PDM. There is no need to configure a username and password first.

Bytheway, I think you need to configure pdm location as well for the PC where you want to connect from.

If you want to use usernames and passwords to give different users different privilige levels (which I think you want, assuming this while looking at parts of your config), then you need a lot more config like setting the privilige levels, setting what to authenticate and what not, and stuff like that.

But first try it the easy way, let´s start simple, just enter the enable password you configured as the password on the prompt (and nu username) when connecting to PDM. This will get you in :-)

You will get privilige level 15 (which is the highest privilige level) when connecting with the enable password.

Hope this helps,

Leo

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Hi leo

I appreciate your help on this.

Thanks for the tip on the passwords.

I was so stuck in my fault that I forgot to do that.

I have followed your steps as you said.

I type in the https://10.98.7.250/pdm.html

It then prompts me about the certificate.

All of them are ticked except for one and it says

"The name on the security is invalid or does not

match the name of the site"

I then click on proceed and it comes up with the

loading PDM manager please wait.....

It just sits on that page and does nothing further.

What do I need to do next?

Kind regards

Silver

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Ward,

In that case it looks to me as you need to regenerate the public/private key.

Please execute the following commands:

ca zero rsa

ca gen rsa key 512

ca save all

After this please try again, but I'm pretty sure this will help you out.

kind regards,

Leo

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Leo,

Thanks again.

I have done the commands as you requested.

I then attempted to login again by typing

https://10.98.7.250/pdm.html

I then get prompted again with the security certificate message.It says that the date is valid etc but it still says the name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site.

At the top of the popup it says Information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others.however there is a problem with the site's security certificate.

So I am still getting this message.

It does however come up with the pretty cisco picture again saying loading PIX PDM manager...please wait...

You got any further ideas?

Thanks again

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Hi all.

May this sounds obvious but, have you already put the address of your pix as a trusted site in the Internet Explorer (i.e. https://10.98.7.250), this problem happened to me and I only needed to put te address of the pix as a trusted site and it works immedatly.

Hope this helps.

David

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Ward,

First of all, the first pop-up does indeed consists of a messgae indicating that the date is valid, but the name of the site is invalid. This is normal and can be ignored by just accepting.

So, after this you are getting the username/password prompt and when entering just the enable secret you get the message loading PDM.

This indicates that your http server is up, you have http access, you have pdm location configured and that the password entered is valid.

What happens next is what it says, that PDM is loading...., at least, it should be :-S

Normally, the first time you enter PDM, you would get a prompt asking if you want to run and install PDM from Cisco. Did you ever get this message? If so, did you clicked yes then?

Is the box ever upgraded?

Could you enter a "show version" and post output, cause it starts to look like the PDM fiel is missing or something like that.

Maybe we can see something there....

Kind regards,

Leo

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Hi Leo

Please see below the show version output.

Please note that I havew done everything that is in all the conversations.Do you think i might need to upgrade my PDM.This is a brand new pix firewall and has never been upgraded.

Re: Pix 515e unrestricted

Sorry for the late reply, but I´ve been a few days of because I´ve become father of a lovely daughter, so I was taken care of mother and child :-))

Ehm, something bothers me from your last reply....

I always thought you had an allready up and running PIX and allready had access to it via PDM, then changed the outside IP-address after which PDM connection failed.

From your last messsage I understand that this is a new out-of-the-box PIX and that configured an IP-address on the outside interface and try to access the PDM via the outside interface. Is this correct?

If so then I´m sorry that I put you on the wrong track all the messages before this one.

If you want to have access to PDM on the outside interface there has to be some crypto-map configud and you have to have a VPN client on your system, caus you can not connect to PDM via the outside without the use of an IPSec tunnel.

You can only connect to PDM without using an IPSec tunnel if you are connecting via the inside IP-address.

If you have a new PIX and you defenitely want to connect via the outside interface to PDM you need to install VPN client on your PC and configure a crypto-map. If this is the case you should read the following sample config (and adapt it to your case):

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_configuration_example09186a0080094497.shtml

Hope this helps,

Leo
