On PIX1, enable http access from the ouside IP of PIX2 (assuming that you use NAT)

PIX1:
  http server enable
  http x.x.x.x 255.255.255.x inside

Yes - the inside IP of the pix using HTTPS

i.e. https://192.168.100.1/

the pix1 inside/pix2 outside are on a 172. network, and the pix2 inside is a 10. network

lrmooreCommented:
OK, but how are you doing NAT, or are you?
You have to tell PIX1 to allow http connections from your IP, whether that be 10. or 172.x, that depends on the answer to the NAT question..

bdebeliusAuthor Commented:
the 10.x. network on the inside of pix2 is nat'd to the outside interface of pix2 (172.x).

lrmooreCommented:
OK, then on PIX1, you must have:
  http 172.x.x.x 255.255.0.0 inside

then from your PC, just go to the PIX1 inside interface IP:
   https://172.x.x.x
        ^^ make sure you use the "s"
