The show version command displays the PIX Firewall unit’s software version, operating time since last reboot, processor type, Flash memory type, interface boards, serial number (BIOS ID), activation key value, license type (R or UR), and timestamp for when the configuration was last modified.
The serial number listed with the show version command in PIX Firewall software Version 5.3 and higher is for the Flash memory BIOS. This number is different from the serial number on the chassis. When you get a software upgrade, you will need the serial number that appears in the show version command, not the chassis number.
For PIX Firewall software Version 6.3(2) and higher, the show version command shows the maximum number of physical interfaces as well as the maximum number of logical interfaces for use with VLANs.
