pix 525 password recovery problem

Hello, we have Cisco Secure PIX Firewall BIOS (4.2),pix 525.

I tried to make password recovery due to procedure in cisco web page.

monitor> tftp

tftp nppix.bin@172.19.0.109 via 172.19.0.109.........................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Received 110592 bytes

Problem is, i get that message but i cant see the "Do you wish to erase the passwords? [yn] y

Passwords have been erased. " message.The screen is stopped.How can i recover pix 525 password.

Note:Also i see from the tftp server that "nppix.bin" is sent.

Thx

Re: pix 525 password recovery problem

Try to verify/use different the Password Lockout Utility version, as you should get the password erase confrmation at the end of the process.

What's your current version - 6.3/6.2/6.1?

Re: pix 525 password recovery problem

nppix.bin is the utility for 4.3 versions and below. Are you using 4.3 and below.

If not, then you don't have the correct password recovery file.

Can you please confirm what version you are running.

The below are the file names with the associated version.

np70.bin (7.0 release)

np63.bin (6.3 release)

np62.bin (6.2 release)

np61.bin (6.1 release)

np60.bin (6.0 release)

np53.bin (5.3 release)

np52.bin (5.2 release)

np51.bin (5.1 release)

np50.bin (5.0 release)

np44.bin (4.4 release)

nppix.bin (4.3 and earlier releases)
