I have finally been able to connect my console and access my pix 506, I am attempting to set up the pdm for use on the computer that is connected via the console cable. I have issued these commands inside the configuration:

http server enable
http 10.11.12.2 255.255.255.0 inside

I have also tried outside. this computer uses the pix as its gateway (10.11.12.254) but after I issue the http commands I cant seem to access the pix via the web interface:

https://10.11.12.254

Can someone help provide some insight?

Thanks!

are you using netscape or IE to try to access the pdm?

silly question but is the pdm bin file loaded on the pix?

I'll be using IE - about the PDM, I dont know, from what I've been reading I need to have DES enabled and the PDM loaded. according to the cisco web site:

pixfirewall# show version
Cisco Secure PIX Firewall Version 6.1(1)
PIX Device Manager Version 1.1(2)   <---- I am missing this line
<snip>
Licensed Features:
Failover:   Enabled
VPN-DES:    Enabled    <---- I am missing this
VPN-3DES:   Disabled

I have sent an email to licensing@cisco.com to be given a free des key.

heres the web site I got the info from:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_tech_note09186a0080094ac1.shtml

Do you think I am on the right track?

Thanks!

You need to load the PDM image into the PIX first.

I doubt very much that PIX units shipped with 6.0(1) have PDM preloaded.  

I would advise upgrading to PIX v6.3 so you can use PDM 3.0.  Both are a lot better than their predecessors !

The PIX 506E is shipped with 6.3 and PDM 3.0 loaded.
