I have several PIX 501 firewalls. These have all been configured with addresses on both inside and outside interfaces. These have all been password protected. I am trying to do a pssword reset using the np63.bin file and tftp. I have went over and over the procedure and ahve been unable to make this work. Here is what I am doing exactly.
I am connecting both my laptop and the PIX to a standalone 2950 switch using a stright thru ethernet cable
1.) Boot the 501 into monitor mode
2.) select an interface using the interface command (I have tried both inside 1 and outside 0)
3.) use the address command to set an address on selected interface. ( I am setting both laptop and interface in the same subnet ie 10.10.2.100/24 and 10.10.2.111/24)
4.) use the server command to tell the monitor mode where the tftp (laptop) is.
I am unable to ping the server from pix while consoled in.
I have tried several times over the last few months and have never been able to get it to work.
Has anyone been able to get this to work in the past or can you currently get it to work now.
I am thinking that part of the issue is that the pix already ahs an ip assigned to the interfaces in the PIX config - however since I am locked out, I am unable to see the ip addressess that are currently set.
