PIX Firewall & License for [ Training ]


I desperately need help & advise on this.

I work for a Cisco Partner and I am in the midst of learning PIX & ASA firewall.

I have purchased a PIX 515 myself & the company are ready to hand me over another one for a month which is identical as I have been told.

The question is I need to upgrade the firewall ( hardware and software license )

So accuring the hardware is not at all a problem as we have them in stock in the warehouse but the question is about the license.

I have been told that even if I upgrade the hardware I cannot change the license....I will need to call Cisco for some keys.

Does Cisco provide any keys for training purpose or will I have to pay for the training license ??

Does it help we are Cisco Partners ?

Thank you all in advance for you help.

Re: PIX Firewall & License for [ Training ]

I'm fairly certain that Ciscdo does not offer "training" licenses.

As a partner, you may be able to get your Cisco Rep to come up with something, but I've never heard of anything from Cisco as a general program.

Good Luck
