I just bought a second hand PiX 501. Of course it is passwd protected, not a problem actually.
But then my problem came, the standard password recovery procedure does NOT work!
My bios rewision is 4.2, so i chose nppix.bin from the password overrider files.
My tftp server is up and running! And it is even sharing the file! The download of the file completes to the PiX!
It is just, that after the download, i get xxxxxx bytes downloaded successfully, and then nothing.
No question for resetting the passwd, no prompt, no reboot.
Actually even my terminal says i'm off-line!
I use debian 5 with minicom as terminal.
I could use any help!
( ps.: i tought, i must be using the wrong file, so tried them all... I even downloaded them at the company i work for. I tought maybe my proxy at home is crushing the file. But no luck. i casted diff on the two files, and they are identical. )
I read over the problem that you have. It sounds like you are just trying to get access to it again since you had bought it from someone. Have you tried to erase the flash and then load in a new code into the pix? You have to use the erasedisk first through monitor mode.. it will allow you to erase the flash including the config and the activation keys.. so you will have to add your key back in and build the config from scratch.
After you run that and erase the flash, you repeat by going back into the monitor mode and then you can tftp the image over for your pix.
