Upgrade available for PIX 501 to v.7.0 of software?

Hi Folks,

Is the upgrade to the 7.0 version of the PIX software available for the 501? If so, what kind of support contract or whatever do you have to have?

Thanks!

John

Unfortunately 7.x is not available for 501, nor 506,506Es. The max code for 501 is 6.3(5). I recommend you get asa5505 as this is your only upgrade option for pix501 to utilize 7.x-8.x codes.. you may buy smartnet contract for asa5505 if you get it in order to get access to TAC and code upgrades and/or hardware replacement etc... Any Cisco partner can provide you with information on smartnet services once you upgrade 501 to asa5505 if you decide to do so.

Thanks, Jorge. I was afraid that I was stuck with a piece of gear that wouldn't upgrade. I'm not sure I'll upgrade to a Cisco product. Haven't been terribly happy with this one....
