I am trying to perform password recovery for some people that manage a certain router. They do not have old configs or a good password for this router. I am using hyperterm with windows xp on a laptop and use ctrl func break and it is not breaking. I cannot see what the config registry is set to so I cannot tell if they disabled the "break" key. I have used various other break sequences. When I test my laptop on another device to break into it I have no problems. Can anyone give me any advice on how to break into this device? I am also not sure if they have "no password-recovery" in their configurations since they have no documentation on this.
In case they have no pass recovery set, take a look at the IOS 12.4 security configuration guide, page 1866:
"To recover a device once the No Service Password-Recovery feature has been enabled, press the Break key within 5 seconds after the image decompresses during the boot. You are prompted to confirm the Break key action. When you confirm the action, the startup configuration is erased, the password-recovery procedure is enabled, and the router boots with the factory default configuration.
If you do not confirm the Break key action, the router boots normally with the No Service
