I just recieved my PIS 501 that I bought off ebay and I can't log in to it.  I've tried the default but nothing is happening.  The power, IP 0, and Link/Act lights are green.  I can't access the internet through the firewall. There is a sitcker that has a local and public address on it, I hae tried both but still can't connect.  Is there a way to reset the firewall to it's defaults.  I don't have a console cable (still waiting from ebay).  Please help

    Hi Gerald,


    glad to hear that you solved it. Yeah the documentation about these is glitchy imo, been doing the same reasearch a few times myself . First time you reset these passwords it makes you wonder and think really doesn't give you enough feedback, does it!


    Btw, unless you change the OS on the pix you'll be learning old commands that is almost legacy? now. They remind me more about the older Firewall configs rather than the new IOS configs....and translating new commands to old ones is a pain . (im too young to have learned what was before IOS)
