PIX 515 Password Recover Help

I'm using the following procedure list to try to recover the password (/blank the password) on a PIX 515

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...8009478b.shtml

I have the appropriate binary file (np63.bin) and have a computer  connected to the network and to the PIX via a console cable. I have  downloaded a free tftp software onto the workstation.

The PIX seems to be the default gateway on the network.

PIX IP: 10.10.0.7

Workstation IP: 10.10.0.11
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
DNS: 10.10.0.8



Please can some explain which IPs I should be entering in for the address, server and gateway commands from the monitor> prompt.

And also how I should setup the tftp software on the workstation.

I dont have any experience in this equipment so all help greatly appreciated!!

Hello,

On the PC that is directly connected to the PIX, download TFTPd32 package (which is a TFTP Server) and install the software.

http://tftpd32.jounin.net/tftpd32_download.html

Once you install the software, go to C:\Program Files\tftpd32 folder and copy the np63.bin file to that folder.

Now on the PIX, get to monitor mode and configure the following:

interface 0

(Wait for the response)

address 10.10.0.7

gateway 10.10.0.11

server 10.10.0.11

file np63.bin

tftp

Now you should be able to follow the procedure listed in the document you have referred.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

I actually got it to work, thanks.

It was the tftp server that was incorrect.

Thanks for the reply regardless
