Pix 506 - Recovering Password

Unanswered Question

I have a Pix 506 that I don't seem to have the correct "Enable" password for. Is there any way to figure out what the password is or reset it to a default?

This Pix is not located on-site. I have no physical access to it so I can't console in. I can SSH into it, but I don't know the Enable password so I can't do anything with it. What I do have is PDM access to it. Remember, this is the "enable" password that I need.

I think there is an option in PDM to execute commands on the command line, have you tried that?

I think I may have screwed myself up. I was able to use the command line in PDM and I wanted to change all the passwords. To do that, I had to remove the username (no username). When I did that it closed me out. Now I can't get into the Pix using PDM, SSH or anything.

What can I do to get in?

I think I essentially removed the user(not knowing it was going to sign me out), so now I have no users in the Pix.
