My PIX firewall is configured with as its IP.

I'm entering in order to access the PDM GUI interface.

I had tried using cisco as the username and password, tried username admin & root.  None of these are authenticating me.  Please help!&

I will be posting more questions.  All of them are worth 500 points each because they're urgent.  I need to have a new router & a pix firewall up and running for an on-site visit scheduled for tomorrow.

try this:

aaa authentication http console LOCAL
username taki1gostek password <yourpassword> privilege 15

Then use that username/password with the PDM
If that fails, you may need to update your Java SE on your laptop.
Try getting the latest J2SE 1.5 from
