how to reload the pix using the pdm interface

I have a pix 501 and can log into it remotely using the PDM interface but not the serial interface.  I need to do the reload command to restart the pix, but cannot get it to work in the command line interface (CLI).  How do I restart the pix from the PDM?

There is no way in the GUI to reload the PIX with a button presented on a menu.

However, you can go to Tools - Command Line Interface and then in the "Command" field, type this:

reload noconfirm

Then click the "Send" button.  This will reload the PIX without asking for confirmation.  You have to use the "noconfirm" option doing it this way, otherwise the command will fail.

You can in the newer 7.x code, but not in the 6.x code that the PIX 501 runs...

See the following link for all the reload options in the new 7.x code:
