Cisco 2801 password reset

Hello,

One of my remote office router model is Cisco 2801. Unfortunately I forgot the telnet/vty password of that router. I am sitting 500 KM distance in between in the Head Office. I can ping the router but due to lost password I cannot login to the router. Moreover I dont have snmp enabled in that router. So this option is out of question.

Is there anyway I can reset the router's password remotely from my head office. Additionaly I have a switch directly connected to the router and I can ping and login to the swtich but not the router. I am writing this about the switch if the help resetting the routers password anyway.

Please help me.

Regards,

Sayeed

Cisco 2801 password reset

Hi,

Unfortunately you cannot reset the password remotelly. You have to connect to the router via the console port and this needs your physical presence.

This document will help you out:
