enable secret command mistake

I entered "enable secret fluffy", and now I'm locked out.  A question mark after "enable secret" says I can enter "line".  This is not the case, I needed to enter 0 or 5, which I didn't do.   I tried <space> fluffy, and all the variations.  I don't want to break in if I can avoid it.  Any one know what I can enter to get enable privelages?  thanks

Re: enable secret command mistake

If you used "enable secret fluffy" then fluffy is your password. It will be default use 0 (unencrypted password following).

There is probably a typo when you typed fluffy because it should have worked.

If there are still issues password recovery will be your only option to get into the router.

I hope it helps.

You probably correct, although I cut and pasted my initial input.
