From the command line

Enter

>enable
#configure term
(config)#http [your ip address] 255.255.255.255 inside
(config)#exit
#write mem

To access the command line, plug a Cisco console cable into the console port of the PIX.  Connect the other end of the console cable to your computer's serial port.

Using Hyperterm or other terminal emulator, set the port settings to

Bits Per Second 9600
Data Bits 8
Parity None
Stop Bits 1
Flow control hardware

Access from one of the two PCs on the network

Under configuration>Device Access>HTTPS/ASDM

Add your laptop IP address.

Look under system properties.  You are looking for HTTPS/PDM access.

Of course this would be much easier from the command line.

It's not a windows issue.  You need to enable http access to specific PCs.  You do this in the PIX.  Any of the instructions above will resolve the issue.

I suggest that you enter the commands listed above in the command line of the PIX since you cannot locate it in the PDM.
