I have attached the error message that I am getting.

I am running Windows 7 os and is using the WinAgents TFTP server managment software.

Any thoughts?
Use BREAK or ESC to interrupt flash boot.
Use SPACE to begin flash boot immediately.
Flash boot interrupted.

I would ytry the TFTPD32 server from here http://tftpd32.jounin.net/

also make sure that your Windows7 firewall is either turned off, or you have enabled a "hole" in it for TFTP

If you use the line "monitor 0" you need to connect to the outside interface of the PIX, if you do not use the line "monitor 0" then use the inside interface

did you see my post above ?

Are you able to ping your PC from the PIX ?

I think the issue is that I am not able to ping the pix from the pc. I thought the IP was 192.168.1.1 but it does seems to be correct.

Is there a way to find the crrect IP for this device?

ArneLoviusCommented:
When you boot the PIX into monitor mode it has no addresses, this is why you need to assign an address to it.

If you are not able to ping the PC, and the PC firewall is off, lets start with some basic steps

Are you connected directly from the PC to the PIX using an Ethernet cable ?
Does the PC show that the Ethernet pot is "up" ?
Which pot on the PIX are you connecting to ?

Are you connected directly from the PC to the PIX using an Ethernet cable ? Yes, I am console into the pix using a console cable and I also connect the nic on the pc to port 0 on the pix.



Does the PC show that the Ethernet pot is "up" ?I am getting a link light

Which pot on the PIX are you connecting to ?
I have tried port 0 and 1 and the result is the same....

ArneLoviusCommented:
if you have another computer to test with, connect it to port 2 on the PIX, configure the other PC with 192.168.1.3 and see if you can ping 192.168.1.2

Here is the official cisco guide to password recovery for the pix, along with the needed downloads. I have used this prodcedure many times in the past and know it works well.

Also be sure to understand there is a definite difference between ftp and tftp. Cisco devices use tftp.
