Dear EE
I have a Cisco PIX Firewall 515e
I want to reset it but I have questions first:
1 - Will the certificate be erased too?
2  Will the IOS file deleted too?
+ after I did that can I access the https://192.168.1.1/admin because i cant access it now?
Please advise me

Depends how you reset the PIX.  If you did a clear config all and then a wr erase reload all existing configuration will be erased, including the certificate.

The PIX OS file will not be deleted by the above method.

If the config was cleared as per the above, you won't be able to access the firewall over the network as it will only have a default config which doesn't include addressing etc.  You'll need to console into the device, give it some base settings (IP addresses, allow https access).

Cheers

in the password pop up password field enter the password you put in during the initial config, if that doesn't work (ie you reset the device and haven't put the initial password back in) leave the username and password fields empty and hit enter.
