PIX Version 5.2 vs 6.x

Currently running 5.2 on both our 515's - Is it advisable to upgrade to 6?

Licensed Features:

Failover: Enabled

VPN-DES: Enabled

Maximum Interfaces: 6

Cut-through Proxy: Enabled

Guards: Enabled

Websense: Enabled

Throughput: Unlimited

ISAKMP peers: Unlimited

Will change-over affect any of our enabled features?

Why/Why not (Security issues with 6)?

Appreciate any replies.

Regards,

Michael

Re: PIX Version 5.2 vs 6.x

My experience with PIX code suggests keeping it current but not too current (unless there’s a new feature you have to have). So as a rule, I always stay on the latest revision of the previous version. For example, they’re on 6.0(1) now, so I’m running 5.3(2). When 6.1 comes out, I’ll move to 6.0(last) unless I find reason to move sooner (bugs, features, or security advisories).
