HTTP in enabled using the console. So i'm stuck. PS the local devices can see the internet.

You have
http server enable
http inside
In the config? (assuming you are inside and your IP is also ensure there is a valid pdm image in the flash memory and you are NOT going through a proxy server, also try using an OLD version of Java http://www.petenetlive.com/Downloads/software/j2re.exe

How can I enable https access on PIX so I can configure using PDM?
If you want to access it in general:

http inside
ssh 0.0.0 inside

This tends to be a good rule of thumb with the inside interface to get started...you'll just need to be on the same subnet - I tend to plug into the 0/1 interface (with a laptop) with a static of like gw .1 and hit it after http is enabled.

Thanks all. The problems seems to be with the Java version on my Vista machine (its to new) I have tried it on a XP machine and got further. Logon screen and password box, but then no further. I'm having to try different versions of Java (long winded process!) Would upgrading the PDM from 3.0(2) to 3.0 (3) help?
Also, can someone suggest any management software for this device (ideally free!)
You should be able to get ASDM for the PIX as opposed to PDM.  As long as it has 16MB RAM you should be able to load it in and get it rolling.  I think you can do 7.2/5.2 with ASDM...I doubt you'll run into the Java issues any longer.  If you have Cisco support you can get it.
