Once the minimum required PIX configuration is in place and
the web browser is set up to be both Java-enabled and support HTTPS (HTTP over
SSL), use the following commands to launch PDM:
Use a web browser on the workstation designated as running PIX Device Manager in the PIX configuration. Enter the
following, using the PIX inside interface address to launch PDM:
Accept the security certificate. If you don’t accept the
certificate, the PDM won’t launch.
A user name/password box will appear. Leave the user name
blank and use the enable password as the password. If no enable password is set,
click OK to continue.
If prompted, accept the second certificate presented. This
VeriSign certificate ensures the certificate originated from Cisco Systems and
enables PDM to run as a signed applet.
The PDM should launch after the certificates are accepted. Follow
the instructions on the screen. If the PDM detects this is the first PDM
session, then it launches the Startup Wizard. Figure 22-4 shows the Startup
Wizard opening screen (the next section covers this wizard). Or, you can use
the Cancel button to close the wizard and work from the menus. If the Startup
Wizard gets closed, it can be reactivated at any time from the Wizards menu.
