Re: forget password

Hi,

Please after the control break,what do i have to do next

Re: forget password

Hi

(1)You can use command

>config-register 0x2142

>in

This will reboot the router ingnoring the NVRAM

(2)

Router>en

(3)

Router#copy sta run

YourRouterHostName#config t

YourRouterHostName(config)#ena sec YourPassword

YourRouterHostName(config)#config 0x2102

YourRouterHostName#wr

pls do not change any step's order, you may end up losing ur config.

It will be better at step 3 to copy your start-up config(You must be knowing how to copy the config from hyperterminal to notepad)

Pls rate helpfull posts.
