Access to PIX PDM

Hi we support a company who have a pix firewall, i can access the CLI interface via telnet i know the read and enable passwords but when i go to access https://192.168.1.1 via an IE6 browser i always get authentication failed, i have tried a number of different username/password combinations including no username, pixadmin, admin but still no luck i'm assuming the password will be the enable password. Can anyone give any advice?

Thanks

Are you trying to connect from outside their LAN or are you inside their LAN?
is the PDM enabled so that you can access it via the web?

Hi

Trying to access it from within the LAN

I cant be 100% on it being enabled but looking at the Policy it has lots of PDM Location Entries so again was just assuming what would i look for in the policy to tell me it is enabled?

do a show ver on your pix from the cli and see if PDM is installed, if installed, then look for a line that states
http enabled

done the command and it does not say PDM is installed..have we found my problem?  I can see http enabled in the policy though.

If you have the
http enabled
command you also need to allow traffic to it.  Add the following:
http   inside
(where  is your LAN IP address and  your subnet mask)

You also need to create a user to use for logging in:
username example password example privilege 15

After that you should be able to login using the user "example" you just created with it's password.

I'm not sure if the installation of PDM would show up in a show version, that's why I hadn't answered that part yet. I don't have a PIX handy to test it unfortunately.
If your PIX Firewall is new and was shipped with PIX Firewall software version 6.0 or higher, then PDM should already be installed.

I included the command to add a user in my previous post:
username example password example privilege 15

replace example with username and password of your choice.

Hi Sorry i have only just got to look at this again!

I created the user as suggested and now when i enter my new user name and password it goes to a error 404 file not found IE Page so i am now being authenticated.

Any other thoughts.

Cheers
