Upgrading PIX506

Pretty simple question for you guys. I want to upgrade the OS of my 506 pix firewall which is currently running version 5.2(4). I've been to the software download page, but it doesn't clearly specify what file is what. All I want is the most recent version of the OS that will run on my pix. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Hi,

pix631.bin

Binary REQUIRES 32 MB RAM AND 8MB FLASH

OR

pix622.bin

Binary REQUIRES 32 MB RAM AND 8MB FLASH

If you need PDM, then the corresponding PDM

pdm-301.bin

Cisco PIX Device Manager for PIX 6.3

OR

pdm-211.bin

Cisco PIX Device Manager for PIX and FWSM

Thanks,

Great thanks,

Another quick question, for the pdm-211.bin you mention FWSM, what does it stand for?

Thanks aqgain

Hi,

FWSM stands for Firewall Software Module. Its a firewall blade that can be inseted into the Cat 6000. Another name for FWSM is Fornax.
