IS it possible to cut and paste a Cisco Pix 506E config into a Cisco ASA 5505....The pix 506 PSU died and It will take days to get a new adapter...Trying to figure out how change there is to do in order to get the ASA to work the same as the old Pix Temp. Mostly I am worried about the interface IPs and ACLs and such..Also have some IPSEC tunnels setup...everything else is pretty minor...

Unfortunately not.  The two share several common command structures but not complete.  Interface configs should, ACLs may, but there are syntax differences that might impact.  The other items are on the same lines but with increasing difficulty.

It is possible, if you saved the config you able to cenvert it!
Please use PIXtoASAsetup_1_0.exe this is an executable installer of the Cisco PIX-to-ASA Migration Tool for Microsoft Windows XP or later. You able to download from ccoweb http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Software/Tablebuild/doftp.pl?ftpfile=cisco/ciscosecure/pix/PIXtoASAsetup_1_0.exe&app=Tablebuild&status=showC2A Best Regerds, Istvan
