Hello i have a pix 501 that i intend to administrate over the internet.

How do i set up the pix so that i can administrate it from the office? It has a fixed ip address.

How is this done. This administration issue is only temporary so security is not a big isssue.

I need command line access at first but access to the pdm would be nice too.

Than you so much for the help EE folks.

    Seems pix does not allow Telnet access over the internet.

    You can use SSH over the internet. Free SSH clients like Putty  http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
    Or go to http://www.ssh.com
    They also have a free ssh client that I use.

    Enable ssh on the PIX:
      ssh 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 outside

    You can always use the command line function of the PDM GUI to do some comman-line stuff..
