I can log on to the 4006 sw using tacacs but can't change the passwords as the are shown as encrypted. I used the encrypted as a old password but is not taking. I forgot the old password. CiscoWorks is not configured to use SNMP.
Unless you have a snmp wizard who knows snmp inside and out there is no other way . The one way that might work if you have another 4006 that you know the password I "think" you can copy that encrypted string into a file on a tftp server then config net that file then change the password the normal way . I believe I changed it that way once a long time ago .
But you would need the enable secret in order to to the TFTP, wouldn't you?
Ordinary "encrypted" passwords are too easy to crack if you know the encrypted version - there are tools all over the Internet to do so. Level '5', on the other hand, are much more secure - I don't know any tool that will do it.
