How to access GoDaddy PIX firewall for dedicatd servers (java problem)

It turns out that you can not access godaddy PIX firewall using the latest java, because the PIX control panel uses depricated java functionality, so you need to downgrade your java - following are steps on how to do this without uninstalling the latest java version you have:

You'll need to use java version 1.6.0_11 or older. Newer versions are not compatible with the Pix Device Manager.

You can install a second version of Java. And when you need to access the firewall you can disable the newer version.
Go to: and download an appropriate version.
Once installed navigate to Start > Control Panel > Java > Java > Uncheck all other versions > Ok.

  1. Just wanted to say... THANK YOU! You would think that GoDaddy would have something about that in their writeups. Oh well...
