VPN Concentrator Recovery

Unanswered Question
Jul 13th, 2008

I have VPN 3005 concentrator which has damaged console port and am not sure of any private IP address configured, or for that matter any configuration that exists on that box. Is there any other way to recover access to the box?


I have this problem too.

Without console access it makes it hard to attempt to recover, passwords, configs,etc.. if you knew atleast its IP addresses from the inside interface you could perhaps telnet or http to the inside port, but you are indicating that you don't have any info about this device.

Even if you try to use a network sniffer and mirror the inside interface to capture/decode some of its pacekts to see an IP address but may not work and if it did you are still left with the need to know the admin password.

It would be best if you have Cisco service contract to RMA it to get a replacement, if not you can google vpn3000 repairs , perhaps you may have some luck from a copany out there that repairs network equipment, but all these is not worth the effort as you can prety much pick up a vpn3005 device for couple of hundred bucks on ebay.
