PDM has found that this operation will result in some security rules getting nulled. Please review your translation/security rules, before retrying this operation.

I'm cleaning out some of the services off my network and want to block some of the ports on my pix.

When trying to remove "TRANSLATION RULES" (Static) i get an error.
How can i remove those rules? Is there a way to force remove them? or can i allow null rules?

Please advice.
I'm new to cisco and don't know any command line procedures.

Thank you.

PDM complains because it believes some access-rules are using the static you are trying to delete.  It isn't always correct though, and even if it is that may often be the shortest way to fix something without having to delete too much just to recreate it again.

You can only force the PDM by using the command line.  You can use command line from inside PDM though.
In this case you could open the command line tool from the menu and type "show static".

Then copy paste the static that you want to remove, and prefix it with a "no" on the cmd line.

Then refresh the PDM, and the static should now be gone.  But some access-rules may be listed as (NULL).
