Is there a way to monitor a cisco pix firewall using powershell from another server. I want to collect bandwidth stats.

I know this is not what you wanted to hear, but you might consider using SSH with or without a Cygnus for Windows based approach OR Linux, using a simple interactive language called Expect.  I used Expect all the time with Pix's and Cisco routers.   Just an idea.  I always thought the SNMP was a bear to get my hands around.  If you run with SNMP, you might consider a freeware product called MRTG.

No,

You need to create an SNMP server on the windows server and monitor the PIX interfaces+
