I want to install a certificate on a PIX 506e from our windows 2003 server CA.
In the Cisco manual it is written: "You have to contact the CA administrator to authenticate your PIX manually"

I don't know how to do that.

I am using PDM, and tried also command interface.

I need to use this certificate for VPN client setup.

Thanks a lot, but I got stuck.

I downloaded the MSCEP add-on, installed it, and followed all the instructions given, and all went ok.
But after the certificate enrollment was successfull, I tried to logon to the PIX PDM to configure VPN I couldn't. It is always giving "Cannot find server".

I restored original conf and it worked back again. I restarted the procedure and I always get stuck at this point.

What could be wrong?

I think you are doing everything correctly.  I think you need to use my solution above with this additional piece of information:

I just wanted to make things more clear:
Before doing the enrollment I was able to use the PDM.
After enroll, PDM is not working
I restarted the PIX (conf changes lost), then PDM is working again.

I habe one question:

I read in another Cisco doc that I have to enter
ca save all

In the end.
I did not. Can this be the cause of the problem?

ca save all did not solve the proble, neither did: aaa authentication http console LOCAL

I do not have a problem in username and password, the PIX PDM page is not opening at all.

Now even after restart I cannot use PDM.

PDM is now again working after I wrote:

ca zeroize rsa

But the enrollment is cancelled.
