PIX 520 Update

Hi,

I've got a Cisco Pix 520 running PIX v4.2(5). When I do, "show ver" It shows:

Hardware: SE440BX, 128MB RAM, CPU PII

Flash atmel @ base 0x300

How can I tell what is the size of the flash? I want to upgrade it to 6.xx if possible. The box has 3 NIC.

Thanks

Shane

unfortunately, pix 501, pix 506/506E, and pix 520 are not supported in software v7.0

jackko.

Thanks for the reply. Well since the current version is 4.2, I would like to upgrade it to 6.xx the latest at least. my questions are how can I find the size of my flash to make sure I can upgrade. Also I used bh532.bin and bh611.bin, boot helper files to boot from and I get bunch of errors.

thanks

Re: PIX 520 Update

one way is to do "sh ver" on the pix.

e.g.

pix> sh ver

Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6.3(3)

Cisco PIX Device Manager Version 1.1(2)

pix up 213 days 8 hours

Hardware: PIX-515E, 64 MB RAM, CPU Pentium II 433 MHz

Flash E28F128J3 @ 0x300, 16MB

BIOS Flash AM29F400B @ 0xfffd8000, 32KB

with the sample output above, the memory is 64MB and the flash is 16MB.
