SmartFilter not connection to Cisco Pix Firewall.

I have downloaded the 30 day trial of SmartFilter from to see how it works. I installed it ok, or I thought. Then when it came time to view the data that it was collecting there was nothing there.

My Config:
Server with Smart Filter Installed:
Cisco Pix Firewall:
Smartfilter Plugin: IFP - (others are default)

Does anyone have experiance with this? I tried calling Secure Computing and they said that once I downloaded the internet database that data would start to go through. But still I get nothing.

    Ok, I was adding the url-server to the pix firewall. but after I ran the command, I noticed that I ran the command for websense and not n2h2. Is there any way to run a command that will let me remove the url-server that I already put in?

    "no" in front of almost any command will remove it..

    After a long time of searching, it looks like the Cisco PIX 501 with firmware 6.3 is not compatible with smart filter. I think they took the support out. of the PIX.
