I assigned Ip addresses to PIX interfaces, these IPs are shown in "show running-config' command but when I check it by 'sh int ip brief' it shows interfaces with unassigned ip

If you upgrade from monitor> mode and reboot, you are booting into a very blank config. You have to manually assign the ip address to the interfaces ..
The interfaces are also in shutdown mode and you have to "no shutdown" each interface

When I assign the IP address to the ip addresses to the interfaces these IP addresses are shown in the 'show run' command, but in 'show interface ip interface' the interface shows IP unassigned.

If the interface is down, it won't show up in sho int ip brief. I has to be enabled and connected to something.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You also have to use nameif and set security levels on the interfaces before they will show the ip address in sho int ip brief

I have upgraded the IOS image in PIX firewall. Actually I was using straight cable but cross cable is required.
Thanks for your help and support
