Is it common for a Cisco PIX firewall to take minutes to log on? It looks
unresponsive, and then:

Username: admin
Password: *****
aaa server host machine  not responding


Re: Cisco PIX

Not minutes.  Are you consoling in?  Or telneting in?

Make sure you don't have a virus on the network....
Happened to me a while ago with the wincalc.exe, paproxy.trojan or something
like that, it was making thousands of connections outside, clogging my
xlats, and randering access to thye PIX impossible
Login to the PIX, sh xlat command, and see if you have multiple connections
from certain machines. I'd take them offline, clean them and then take it
from there.
If you are unable to login to the pix, try rebooting the device without any
insiders attached to it.
Hope it helps your troubleshooting

It's not common, from the text you've posted it sounds like it's set up
to use an AAA server which isn't available so it's taking some time
before that process times out and it authenticates you locally.
