Question about CacheFlow 6000 CA-6585 (100-02510) Firewall

1 Answer

Cache Flow 6585, 6286, and 6285

Someone I know has a number of high-end Cache Flow devices and wanted to know if it was even worth putting this equipment back online. The Cache Flow devices that are available are: 4 x CA-6585 1 x CA-6286 2 x CA-6285 I know that in their day, these were the early work horses in supporting multimedia services. If they can still be good work horses to support these new web 2.0 services in some way, and keeping them on and supporting them won't break the bank, we are open to suggestions. If an application can be identified and the cost to bring this equipment back on line and supporting are your specialty, we look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

Hi there, I guess the utilysation of the CF depends on different factors. If the ISP had a lot of clients and used to get a lot of surfing then usage of CF is usefull, only one have to update the bypass list time to time. For making them usable for now... one can upgrade their software version, increase their capasity of HDD and ram and optimise the config to make the best usage of them. Thanks and Regards Hanif CTO Sirius Broadband (BD) Ltd

I forgot my key number and password. How can I retrieve them

Best bet would be to ask assistance from someone with credentials to reset your user account. Otherwise you may try to completely default the device with directions included with unit. This may involve any software that came with it when new.

PIX Firewalls

This device is what Cisco calls EOL (end-of-life). What this means to you is that you can no longer purchase Cisco's SMARTnet contracts for hardware or software support. Nor will there be access to code or ASDM software on Cisco's website. However, you may yet be able to find a Cisco support partner that can assist you with software support such as NETech ( But you will not be able to replace the device under any hardware contract should the hardware fail. Ultimately speaking, you should upgrade to an ASA in order to maintain all of the benefits of owning a Cisco product. If you purchase your new device from a high level Cisco Partner, they should be able to offer some nice discounts on your new hardware, software, support contracts and licensing (I've heard of up to 50%, but that will be up to your specific Cisco account representative).

I hope I have been informative,

Best wishes.

Iraq.comBarracuda 330 keeps dropping VPN tunnels - any ideas?

I have been having the same issue. I make one change on one tunell even and all of them go down. I have called Barracuda and they look at logs but nothing has ever been resolved. I have Cisco WRVS4400N on the other end of my 12 VPN's. Why they have such a hard time talking and communicating I don't know but it is very frustrating.

Would suggest getting your money back ASAP.
There are other solutions out there and in my humble opinion work far better. Best of all, These are free to use!
Ounce of Prevention is worth a pound of cure:
Spybot search and Destroy (spyware remover)
Comodo firewall (excellent and easy to setup)
ZoneAlarm Firewall (One of the best but not for the novice)
(Basically anything but the windows firewall)
Tip: Only run one firewall!!!!

AVG Free virus protection
NOD32 Virus protection (excellent but not free) 30 day trial however.
HiJackThis (Be careful with this one.)
IObit360 (Highly recommended and fast!)

Remember: Only run one firewall and one Virus program at a time.
Running more only slows your machine down to the point of un-usable.

Good luck!

Upgrade firmware on a cisco ASA 5500 firewall

This is for the pixes, I haven't upgraded an asa yet...should be close or the same

* find latest version of code, these are usually *.bin files located on
* confirm the flash and RAM requirements of the PIX OS software versus what the PIX has (”sho ver”)
* make sure you have a backup of the old PIX OS and PDM to the tftp server (or at least confirm the software is there)
Note: You cannot back them up from the PIX, so you will need to download them and put them on the tftp server * put in a change control form
* once change controls confirms date/time do the upgrade:
wri mem*** only if you save your configs via tftp wri net conf t ca save all copy tftp://your tftp server ip/pix635.bin flash:imageskip this if you don't use pdm copy tftp://your tftp server ip/pdm-304.bin flash:pdm *** if this is a failover pair, upgrade the other pair reboot
