Password recovery

I have a PIX 501 whose password I want to reset.Problem is I follow the TAC authored steps to achieve this and somehow my connection to the server where the Password file resides is not succeeding.

Question is how do I go about preparations for my TFTP server and on what system type should the tftp service be?PC,Router,PIX ...?

Remember there are no settings to preserve in the PIX and it is a floppyless one.

Re: Password recovery

Use cisco's tftp server for pcs, or one on a unix machine (most have them installed by default). There is no tftp server on the PIX.

Re: Password recovery

Elaborate on this please.Do I download any software or something?Since my ftp server doesn't seem to communicate with the PIX.Any other means of doing this task without involving another system?

Re: Password recovery

You have to TFTP for the password recovery on a PIX. Solar Winds has a good TFTP Server that will run on Windows systems that you can download for free at:

I have used this TFTP with PIXes and it works.
