Hi,
I have a client that I am trying to move from a Cisco PIX 506 to a new SonicWall TZ 180.
The do not seem to have the graphical interface running on the PIX 506.

How do I get the configuration information from the PIX so I can program the new firewall correctly?

Ports, etc?

Thanks for any help

If you have to have the gui for the 506, you'll have to install Cisco PDM.---  http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/iaabu/pix/pdm/v_21/pdmig/pdminst.htm

Otherwise you'll have to telnet to the 506 to view your ACL's and firewall rules and then just recreate those same rules on the Sonicwall.

Hmmm OK,


So is there a reference somewhere as to what the settings text means?

I see all this ?fixup and imcp , inside, outside,

here is a list of the fixup lists. What are these?

fixup protocol ftp 21
fixup protocol http 80
fixup protocol h323 1720
fixup protocol rsh 514
fixup protocol rtsp 554
fixup protocol sqlnet 1521
fixup protocol sip 5060
fixup protocol skinny 2000
no fixup protocol smtp 25

Thanks for any illumination

Using the the fixup protocol will let you control specific ports on your firewall.  i.e. port 21, 80 ,etc

Most of these you probably won't need to create in your Sonicwall.
