I'm a new intern at a company working to gain real world experiance for free.
I was given the task of reseting PIX 501's back to their factory default settings. Thats easy
if you have thw username and password.
I tried to follow the directions on CIsco for the password reset, the only problem is after
setting address, server and file and then using the command tftp, the terminal just waits there.
I'm using solarwind and I've set the TFTP root to look at the folder containing the np63.bin file I need to use.
There is no natural firewall running on Windows XP laptop that I'm using.
Some activity shows that the terminal is trying to send the file to the Pix machine , but it times out after about a second.
I tried pinging the laptops ip address, which is what the server was set to in the pix hyperterminal, but I recieve no response. I tried pinging
from the command line in windows, pinging the address I assigned for the pix in the hyperterminal, but agian no response.
So the problem seem to be some kind of communication between server and pix. The hyperterminal works ok, but not the sending of i
information packets between server and pix. I'm still new to network machines and fresh out of school. I worked some with cisco
machines in class but I'm stumped. I've tried looking up other forum questions like this on the web, but when ever it comes to the server
the respeonse always say something like fix the server before going on. IT just sits there wiating in the pix machine. My problem is the server. I feel confident I could do this following
the CISCO instruction sheet if I could just ping the server and get a response.
So if you have any idea what I need to do to get them pinging please let me know today.
