Displaying the ports that are open on PIX506E

I am very new to the PIX and i was wondering if there is a way to display the ports that are open on my firewall through the PDM.  I can also use the CLI if that is easier.  Thanks.

write t command statement to list the configuration.

so when i do that, i get alot of fixup protocols that show up.  What does that mean?
lrmooreCommented:
fixup protocols are not "holes" or open ports. These commands look deeper into the packets for upper layer instructions that fit within the norm. They only work in conjunction with access-lists. Only an inbound access-list (or a conduit) can "open ports"
i'm assuming that you are using PIX 6.x with the PDM, and therefore are NOT using conduit commands. Is this correct?
With the PDM, File/"show current config in new window" is the same as a CLI "show config"
Just look at the access-list that is "applied" with the following command:
access-group <acl> in interface outside

I'm assuming that i don't have any ports open right now because i don't have any access-lists.  And since i don't have any access-lists, the fixup ports are just there waiting to be used.  Am i correct?
lrmooreCommented:
Exactly. You have no open ports for un-invited traffic, the fixups don't necessarily just sit there, they are part of the Adaptive Security Algorithm to support the returns of outbound requests. For example, the fixup ftp is required because your outgoing ftp request is initiated on one port, and the data is sent on another port.
