    Cisco - Interface down

    Hi,

    On a Cisco PIX firewall when running sh int and all ports report back as "Interface Ethernetx "", is down, line protocol is down" - Is it safe to assume the device isnt being used?

    Thanks

    It means the Ethernets are not in use presently as long as it's not part of some failover then I guess that yes it's probably safe to remove.

    Which PIX is it?

    I would say its not being used, however I'd check it physically make sure there's actually nothing plugged into it. Sounds like A PIX 515e.

    is there a cable connecting the 2 a DB25 if so the one that is down is waiting in failover mode.

    There is a cable. Look on the other firewall and the ports are "Interface Ethernetx "", is down, line protocol is down" like the other

    Sounds like it's fully defunct then.
