Before you Begin
Make sure you have a management connection to the PIX’s console port, or the ability to Telnet/SSH into one of the PIX’s interfaces. You need to know the PIX’s global and enable-level passwords to access the device and issue changes to the configuration. If you do not have these, contact your network administrator before continuing.
SonicWall Inc. recommends updating the PIX’s OS to the most recent version if your PIX can support it. This document was validated on a Cisco PIX 515e running PIX OS 6.3.5 and is the recommended version for interoperation with an SMA appliance. You need a valid Cisco SmartNET maintenance contract for your Cisco PIX and a CCO log in to obtain newer versions of the PIX OS.
The WAN/DMZ/LAN IP addresses used in the deployment method examples that follow are not valid and need to be modified to reflect your networking environment.
