Re: Pix Firewall

Looks like the Activation key ofthe PIX Firewall license ?

Use the activation-key command in order to change your activation key if your PIX currently runs versions 6.2 or 6.3. Refer to the PIX Command Reference for more information.

Example: Upgrade the Activation Key on a PIX that Runs Versions 6.2 or 6.3

pixfirewall(config)#activation-key 54bf4b80 b7237e20 05022c63 f09e3302

Updating flash...Done.

Serial Number: 480490644 (0x1ca3b494)

Flash Activation Key: 0x54bf4b80 0xb7237e20 0x05022c63 0xf09e3302

Licensed Features:

Failover: Enabled

VPN-DES: Enabled

VPN-3DES: Enabled

Maximum Interfaces: 10

Cut-through Proxy: Enabled

Guards: Enabled

URL-filtering: Enabled

Inside Hosts: Unlimited

The flash activation key has been modified.

The flash activation key is now DIFFERENT from the running key.

The flash activation key will be used when the unit is reloaded.

pixfirewall(config)#

pixfirewall(config)#reload

Re: Pix Firewall

Iam not sure if its activation key - it looks like cryptochecksum

Checksum is numeric value used to verify the integrity of a block of data. The value is computed using a checksum procedure.

In PIX firewall is checksum computed from stored configuration - so when is configuration changed and saved new checksum is computed

PIX# wri mem

Building configuration...

Cryptochecksum: xxxx

So it means if configuration is changed crypto checksum is also changed - so you can easily find out if configuration was altered

M,

Hope that helps , rate if it does

Re: Pix Firewall

it's the activation key. so a sh ru and you'll see it there on the bottom. just like the post above. if you make any licensing changes, you'll get another to input.
