Upgrade Cisco PIX 515E to Version 8.0(4)

and ASDM version 6.1(5)

KB ID 0000424


I had to update a Cisco PIX 515E last week, Cisco 500 firewalls are a bit thin on the ground these days, and most of my corporate clients have replaced then with Cisco ASA 5500 firewalls. So as these units are now getting retired, or moved to the test bench, or sold on ebay. I thought I’d document probably the last one I did for posterity, and to help anyone else out.
