It's simply mapping your networks that it see's. Kind of like a routing table for PDM.

Think of it as an ACL for PDM... If you are coming from those subnets (or hosts) you can access PDM... if not, not.

Hope this will clear your doubts.

For example,

pdm location outside

what the above mentioned command means is ...

!--- Assists PDM with network topology discovery by associating an external !--- network object with an interface. Note: The pdm location !--- command does not control which host can launch PDM.

But appears to be the next best thing because although the PIX may have a route to a specific host in its normal routing tables if it doesn't have the host (or the hosts subnet) defined as a 'location', the host won't be able to run PDM.
