    They are so new , I have never see the non Catalyst or anything running
    the CatOS instead of IOS.

    Because <grin> it's the day job </grin>.

    Although the OP hasn't replied with the IOS version number.

    Depending on OP posting again, the 1 obvious URL that's still missing
    the basic console configuration , honstname, ip , password although the
    setup prompt runs automatically and it's a y/n to continue.

    However if the OP does or doesn't do the basic setup and hasn't saved
    the config, it keeps asking.

    You mean creating new rules?

    It can be dead simple, from something like - (pseudo commands)

    allow dns
    allow any server-address-1
    allow any server address-2
    deny everything_else

    If you have a DMZ, multiple interfaces / onboard VPN and so on it gets a
    bit heavy going.

    There are some CIsco PIX 5xx posts in

    but better start off with, lots of help from the regulars.

    Remembering the Cisco online docs as well.

    Some pointer examples and guides

    The 2 books I have are,

    For the exam -
    ISBN 1-58720-123-2 CCSP Cisco Secure PIX Firewall Advanced, Exam
    Certification Guide

    Most likely this 1 first.
    ISBN 1-58705-149-4 CCSP Self-Study Cisco Secure PIX Firewall Advanced

    Oh well, if you go through the reset procedure, or even get the rollover
    cable / hyperterminal going, start logging to a file and power cycle the
    switch. The info will be captured to the log file.
    Something nice for the home :)
