upgrading cisco pix to asa 5505

We have to perform an upgrade from a Cisco pix to an asa 5505.  What is the fastest way to perform this upgrade? I have read some cisco documentation which refers to a pix to asa conversion program... has anybody used this before? I have tried to download it from the cisco website but get I get "There are currently no files for this type" after a log in and go to download link. ?? Anybody know if it is still available?

Yes it works. You can read your current config from file or device. result wil be stored as file.

you can download actual setup here:

That explains why I can't get to the file because it was an incorrect file name that we had... unfortunately looks like I do not have access to that file. I know I have downloaded from cisco in the past without issue but this file requires higher level access?  Hmmmm.....

Ok... it shows me being logged in as a guest user... we have a maintenance contract on a few ASA's that we installed in the past year. I have to believe that we should have access somehow thru a valid account. Guess we should get ahold of our Cisco rep...

yes you must have valid access. else you dont had control of your contracts. it uses same login.
