We're using Software version 2.3 on our Firewall Service Module. Is that the latest version?
Also, the IOS on the 6506 is 12.2(17d)SXB7. Is it still current? Does it support SSH. Our 6506s have 2 SUP2 (slot1 & 2), 1 FWSM (slot3), 1 48 FastEthernet port module (slot4), 2 FlexWAN modules (slot 5 & 6), and PA-A3-OC3-SMI on both FlexWANs.
I tried the Software Advisor, and it gives me a variants of 12.2 (i don't remember exactly what it was). That confused me 'cause the latest version of IOS is 12.4. Isn't 12.4 better than 12.2?
the newest software is not always the best, since new features are integrated in this software and they tend to have some bugs in the beginning. So for a production network consider to use not so new but proven and mature software (look for a high maintenance release number) that has all the features you need. Normally a GD (General Deployment) Status in Software Center indicates the maturity of the software. But in the FWSM softwares you don't find that nomenclature.
