IOS VS PIX

Hello, Everyone, I am not a PIX guru. Maybe this is a stupid question, but I asked a few guys and still get no answer.

My question is: What a PIX can do but a Router with IOS can not do? I ask this question is because I really can not find a thing for this answer.

Thanks!

Re: IOS VS PIX

Hi,

Pix is a firewall while ios is for routing. So it depends on what you want to do. If you would like to do firewalling then use a pix because it has higher/better performance that ios firewall. If you have already invested in ios you only need to update your feature set to get firewall functionality in the same box. So with ios you have more flexibility in terms of features and interfaces. So the answer to your question would be pix firewall is a better performer than ios firewall
