2.0 out of 5 stars Csico PIX 515 E 23 Aug. 2010
By brackmr - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book to learn about the Cisco Pix 515E but, this book as little to do with the Cisco Pix 515E. I have not found any training material that teaches you what you need to about cisco from to back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Up-To-Date PIX Book yet! 12 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Over the years the PIX Firewall has come a long way. There is so much that it can do these days, from standard firewall filtering, to IDS, PDM, IPSEC, encryption, and various other VPN technologies, among others. Having such an extended feature set makes understanding it all a difficult proposition. That is where this book succeeds. First of all, the book is up to date on the latest version and feature set. There are few, if any books that are as recent. Furthermore, the book covers, in detail, all PIX features and gives clear examples. Even better, there is a definite undertone of real-world PIX experience built into the writing. I learned so many things from reading this book that I could not find on Cisco's website. I thoroughly enjoyed the side bars on "Configuring & Implementing" and "Designing & Planning". Overall I highly recommend reading this book. I find myself going back on a regular basis to consult a certain chapter to help me with my daily duties, which include managing various PIX firewalls. Good Stuff!
5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book on Cisco Pix Firewalls 3 Nov. 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book for reference rather than than study use, but it has served its purpose well. First, this book provides decent coverage of Cisco Pixes. Brief overviews are provided of key technical concepts - enough that you can understand what exactly you're configuring. Secondly, the book provides excellent example configurations, even going so far as to step you through basic software setup. (i.e. A step-by-step guide to setting up the integrated PPTP Windows 2000 VPN client, including screenshots). Finally, it provides some of the best coverage of Cisco Pixes that I've found outside of Cisco's website.

There is only one thing I would have liked to see included in this book: A basic configuration example for those who want to use the Cisco Pix as a termination point for Cisco VPN Client connections. For THAT, I had to go hunting for information on Cisco's website. Thus far, this is my only complaint about the book.

I can whole-heartedly recommend this book for anybody who needs a good reference on setting up, configuring, and managing Pix firewalls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for PIX 22 Jan. 2003
By Stuart - Published on
Format: Paperback
Our company uses all of the PIX models from the 501 to the 535s. We are also now using 6.2 I was looking for a book that had coverage on all the models and also was written to v6.2. I got this book, becuase it looked like it would cover all of this, and I just finished reading it last night. The stuff I learned in the book combined with my on the job experience, I now feel like I know just about verything there is. The book was well written with a good level of detail, and it also has lots of output and some pretty good diagrams that help to get the point across.
