RVS4000 default login and password not working

I'm trying to set up a site to site VPN for a client with 2 RVS4000 VPN routers.  The main office router is in use with no issues.  I'm attempting to login to the second identical unused router as "admin" with a password of "admin" which is not working.  I performed a 10 second reset per the users guide but still can't login.  Something else that seems strange is that the users guide states that the IP should be, but it is  I'm guessing that it may have been previously configured and that the router is not resetting properly or it could just be junk.

Any assistance is appreciated.

It sounds like the reset did not take. I would try holding in the reset for at least 30 seconds. If the reset was successful it should reset the LAN IP of the router to and the password to admin. Try holding in for 30 seconds and see how this goes.
