I just bought a second hand PiX 501. Of course it is passwd protected, not a problem actually.
But then my problem came, the standard password recovery procedure does NOT work!
My bios rewision is 4.2, so i chose nppix.bin from the password overrider files.
My tftp server is up and running! And it is even sharing the file! The download of the file completes to the PiX!
It is just, that after the download, i get xxxxxx bytes downloaded successfully, and then nothing.
No question for resetting the passwd, no prompt, no reboot.
Actually even my terminal says i'm off-line!
I use debian 5 with minicom as terminal.
I could use any help!
( ps.: i tought, i must be using the wrong file, so tried them all... I even downloaded them at the company i work for. I tought maybe my proxy at home is crushing the file. But no luck. i casted diff on the two files, and they are identical. )
Thanks in advance!
