Browser not authentication capable

Posted on 2006-10-30

I'm trying to set up PDM on our PIX 525.  I configured all of the http commands, and when I try to hit the ip of the pix it asks for my authentication.  I use no username, and the enable password.  It doesn't work, and I get booted out to a webpage that says the following "Browser not authentication capable or authentication failed".

any ideas?
