I have a cisco pix506e that I reset to factory defaults but now I need to load the configuration file that belongs to that device. Can you show me a step-by-step procedure I can use to acheive this. I am very new to cli syntax. I have a tftp already running on a local system and I am able to login to the pdm and my pix version is 6.3. I would appreciate your assistance.
