Auto Reboot PIX 501

Does anyone have a solution on how to implement scheduled a reboot of a PIX 501 at a specific time?

Although i read here somewhere that interactive commands such as reload -because you have to confirm it - are not supported .
maybe you could write a batch file to telnet to the router and schedule it with windows scheduled tasks?
The kron command is not supported on the PIX 501.

There is an option to the reload command supported called "noconfirm" that makes a reload non-interactive, but you still have to come up with a way to issue the command on a schedule.

You could try using something like Kiwi Cattools to do this...see the below link under the section "Sending commands to your Devices":
