During an initial configuration of my new Pix 501, I entered and confirmed a password when given the opportunity. However subsequent logins have failed. I was not given an opportunity to establish a new user name so I thought leaving the user name blank should work, but it does not. Help!

I tried "pix", "pix501", "cisco", "admin", and ""administrator" with no luck. Do you have any other suggestions?

I need help with password recovery. I have unsuccessfully attempted to connect to the pix console port using a pc running terminal emulation software. I am getting a socket error 10061 (WASECONNREFUSED). Can anyone help?
