Management Considerations for the Cisco Pix
Both deployment methods described in the sections that follow use the PIX’s WAN interface IP address as the means of external connectivity to the internal SMA appliance. The PIX can be managed through HTTP/S but cannot have their default management ports (80,443) reassigned in the recommended PIX OS version. Because of this, the HTTP/S management interface must be deactivated. To deactivate the HTTP/S management interface, issue the command ‘clear http.’
If you have a separate static WAN IP address to assign to the SMA appliance, you do not have to deactivate the HTTP/S management interface on the PIX.
