Cisco Pix revieling too much

By ekinney ·
I have a Cisco Pix 520 (IOS ver 5.3(1) running as a VPN. I have recently noticed that hot submissions to the running config can not be viewed with "sh config" unless I perform a "wr mem". Also, when I show the config, it displays all of my pre-shared keys instead of asterisks

Does anyone have an idea what might be causing my problem?

Cisco has done this on purpose. The configuration changes in memory, then is tested, and if successful, you "write mem." Changes should be tested before written to the configuration. And when you show config, you get the last saved version... not the one that has been changed. Again, this is by design.

You don't have a problem. You just have to change the way you think about programming cisco routers and their pix firewall.
