Accessing the Cisco PIX 501 Firewall Device Manager
To launch the PIX 501 Device Manager your computer must use Java 1.6.0_1. You must disable all other versions of Java on your computer, as well. This version of Java is no longer offered by the developer of Java so if you are not using this version of Java we recommend upgrading to the newer Cisco Firewall the ASA 5505 Firewall. For more information, see Add an External Hardware Firewall
