Re: HELP! password recovery for pix 501

No, this does not work - i get the same. In fact i tftp the .bin file and then get an error - my pck tracer from the tftp server demonstrates the pix is declaring that it's event log is full.

All 12 blocks of .bin file downloads and i get an error messg from the pix. HERE is info from the pix and 5 or 6 packets traced from my TFTP server

Config from PIX (running 6.3 (5))

Re: HELP! password recovery for pix 501

Hi,

I was having a weird issue with SolarWinds TFTP server a few days ago. I decided to try another TFTP server so I went and installed PumpkIN and it started working.

I don't know if it will solve your problem but if you try with another TFTP server you can determine where the problem is (the server or the PIX) :).
