Older PIX501 cannot reset unknown password

Hi,

I've come across a PIX501 at a site I look after that the previous admin didn't document passwords etc.

I've tried to tftp the nppix.bin file to it as per http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/110/34.pdf however nothing happens after the file copies...

It's running 4.2.3 IOS - is there another way to overcome this? It's no longer in use so can be completely blown away if needed.

Many thanks,

W

Hi Warren,

Have a look in the following link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/customer/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_password_recovery09186a008009478b.shtml

As indicated, based on the version you are running you need to download and use the nppix.bin file.

Thanks,

John
