isakmp - pix506e

Hello,

When I transfer the text of my old pix's configuration to a text file, the "isakmp key" doesn't come out, all I see is "*********". I am in the "config t" mode. Can you show me how. I have a full access of my old Pix506e. Thank you.

Hi Peter

I think there are 2 ways of doing this:

sh tech-support detail | in isakmp

or set up a TFTP server and use command

write net

Then you can look the configuration file on the TFTP server and check the passwords.

Please rate post.

I tried out both solutions on a PIX506E. The tech-support does not work but the TFTP server does.

Thanks! I also had the need to do this today.

I don't know if this is true for all PIX/ASA versions but in some you can go into the ASDM/PDM and check the pre-shared key (for some reason it's not encrypted on the web interface).

Not sure that this is the case with you.

Re: isakmp - pix506e

It turns out that the TFTP functionality is a Cisco bug.

It makes sense that they fix it since TFTP is not safe. So, in the future, just remind your passwords because there won't be anyway to recover them it seems.

U can changed it through PIX GUI or PDM.
