you can configure Telnet to the PIX.  Permitting Telnet access to the PIX is only allowed from the inside interface.  Any sessions that attempt to initiate from the outside interface must be IPsec.  If they
are not IPsec, they are rejected

PIX Device Manager (PDM) GUI uses SSL when connecting to the PIX.  PDM is a
v6.0 add-on (a separate file from the PIX OS).  You can use this from the
inside or the outside interface.  The IPsec session is still a requirement
for outside access.  use PDM to manage a number of PIXen.  Be careful though, some PCs cannot handle running multiple SSL sessions well (more memory?).
