Problem negating a command in PIX


I have a PIX 525 and have a problem removing a line from configuration. What happened:

I tried to add an ip route with 20 bits subnet mask ( but it was accepted as (don't know why and I could see I typed it correctly in the terminal emulator). Now if I use "no ip route ..." it gives me error "Invalid IP mask

I added the correct route later, however don't know how to get rid of this wrong one. Any idea?

Thanks a lot,

I have tried removing commands but it wouldn't let me, so I did a wr mem, then removed it and it accepted it. Try that.

Thanks for your response but unfortunately it was not the case for me. I still cannot remove it, after wri m.

Re: Problem negating a command in PIX

I have experienced the same issue and it was with version 5.3(1) software.

Here was my line, albeit not an IP route, but still a bogus line I could not get rid of:

outbound 10 except 0 tcp

I upgraded the software to 6.2(2) and the line "magically" disappeared all on it's own, almost like the software knew to get rid of it.

Hope this helps.
