Re: Cisco password.

Hi,

Look at "the password recovery procedure"

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps380/products_password_recovery09186a00800942bc.shtml

I hope this helps.

Best regards.

There really is not a default user name and password in IOS. That point seems to not be true in routers shipping recently which do come with a user ID and password which appear to function as default. But this is to support SDM and the user name and password are built into the config that ships with the router. When you clear startup and reload you have removed that config with the user name. So now your router does not have a configured user name.
