PIX/ASA 7.0

Is the PIX v7.0 OS the same OS as the one which runs on the ASA? Are configurations portable between the two devices.

Re: PIX/ASA 7.0

They are essentailly the same, though you can't put a pix image on an ASA or vice versa. PIX is mages begin "pix....", ASA images.. well, you can guess.

There are some differences because of hardware - an ASA does not have a serial port for failover (so you use LAN-based failover), it doesn't have FO/R/UR licences, and interface IDs are different.

But in terms of NAT, ACLs, routes, object groups etc it's the same. You can port the config but watch interface and failover config.
