Additional interface card for PIX 515E?

ribin.jones

Level 1

Hi,

We have a PIX 515e. This has 2 built in ethernet interfaces. My requirement is to add an additional interface card to this device so that I can add a DMZ to my network.

Below is the sh version output of my PIX:

sh ver

Cisco PIX Security Appliance Software Version 8.0(3)
Device Manager Version 6.0(2)
Compiled on Tue 06-Nov-07 19:50 by builders
System image file is "flash:/pix803.bin"
Config file at boot was "startup-config"

Encryption hardware device : VAC+ (Crypto5823 revision 0x1)
0: Ext: Ethernet0           : address is 0013.7fdd.2671, irq 10
1: Ext: Ethernet1           : address is 0013.7fdd.2672, irq 11

Licensed features for this platform:
Maximum Physical Interfaces  : 6
Maximum VLANs                : 25
Inside Hosts                 : Unlimited
Failover                     : Active/Standby
VPN-DES                      : Enabled
VPN-3DES-AES                 : Enabled
Cut-through Proxy            : Enabled
Guards                       : Enabled
URL Filtering                : Enabled
Security Contexts            : 2
GTP/GPRS                     : Disabled
VPN Peers                    : Unlimited

This platform has a Failover Only-Active/Standby (FO) license.

It shows "Maximum Physical Interfaces  : 6". So, I guess I could extend the number of interfaces.  Can some one please confirm this?

Also, it will be a great help if you could specify the part number of the interface card I should purchase (single port or multi port).

I am not sure, this is the correct forum to ask this question. Sorry for that..

Thanks in advance for any help,

Ribin

Hi Ribin,

In theory you can, however, PIX firewall is now EOL, hence the interface card is not available anymore. Part# PIX-4FE-66 is the official PIX interface part#.

Here is the EOL notification for your reference:
