How to configure Pix remotley via RDP

Hi all,

I have a successfully implemented VPN WAN. I can connect to my server in another city using RDP and going through my VPN.

I need to make a change to my config of the PIX. I thought, incorrectly, that I could RDP to the server, then use Hyperterminal to connect via the console cable so that I could make the change. Nothing seems to happen when I do this.

How can I make a change to the config remotely?

You can use an SSH client like PuTTY to establish a secure CLI session to the PIX.  You can get it here:

You'll need to use it from the remote server so once you download it to that server, just run it and put in the IP address of the inside PIX interface.  Then, you'll use "pix" as the username and the access password to get in.  Then go to enable mode using the enable password and you're good to go.
Depending on the existing configuration of the remote PIX 506, you may be able to use SSH to access it on the inside interface, or use telnet to do the same.  If you want to use the GUI, you may be able to use the PDM to access it on the inside interface as well.  Have you tried SSH to the inside interface?

batry boy,

Plz excuse my ignorance - The only thing I have ever used to modify my Pix is Hyper Terminal through the console cable.

I know that ssh is setup but do not even know what it is.

How would I ssh or telnet?

batry boy -

You da man. Thanks for your help!
Glad to help!
I hired a company to come out and they worked on it for hours. What they ended up doing was using a seperate router instead of the pix. Everything is now working. Thanks for the help anyhow.
