Password recovery on PIX 515 6.3(3)

I played around with this for a while and couldn't get it to work. Yes I was referencing the password recovery document. What I noticed was when I attempted to tftp the np63.bin file from the tftp server, the pix attempted to use udp/2381 instead of the standard tftp port of udp/69. Anyone have an idea why it would do this, and more importantly how to make it stop?

thanks in advance.

Peter,

I've done lots of password recoverys on pix firewalls but have never had a problem with it being on the wrong port. I've had problems with different tftp servers not likeing the request from the pix. IE the cisco tftp server I've had lots of problems with so I usually use Pumpkin tftp, I've even had problems with some devices not liking pumpkin and have used solarwinds tftp server.

My suggestion is to retry your password recovery while directly connected using a crossover cable. I've also had problems with switches not bringing the port up fast enough.

Thanks for your advice. I've encountered many

of the same issues you have. Fortunately for

me I actually remembered the password, so I never

sorted out the strange tftp port number.
