Hi Guys,

I have a question, a friend of mine is selling me his pix 515 very cheap ($100), really, i don't need it but why not ?, the problem is i don't know anything about PIX's so i'm looking for answers with you guys:

This PIX has a Restricted (R) license.

I was doing some reading and this pix is way to much for me, also these are the questions i have:

1- Can i use it in my home network? (running 3 servers, around 10 hosts and few routers/switches)

2- Can i add more ethernet ports to it?, if yes how?.

3- Can i add more memory to it?, my friend told me if i add more Flash/DRAM he can upgrade it to 7.0 or 8.0 IOS.

Thank you guys in advance. icon_wink.gificon_wink.gif
