I am trying to reset my firewall password so that I can do a factory reset on it.
I bought it used and the rules are more restrictive than I want. It's being used for a small project where we can demonstrate a bad configuration.
I am following the Cisco PIX Password Recovery Guide as the basis for my procedure.
These are the steps that I followed:
- Turn off wireless
- Go to my LAN network options and click on ipv4 options
- Set the ip 192.168.1.49 and DNS 255.255.255.255, click ok
- Start a tftp server on the ip 192.168.1.49
- Connect the firewall via ETHERNET to my laptop (I also have the console serial connected)
- Go into my terminal and type address 192.168.1.75, this is the ip I want for the firewall
- Then I type server 192.168.1.49, ip of my comp/server
- I use the command ping 192.168.1.75 to test the connection and it says 0/5 successful
- I tried using the tftp command to get the file I needed, but it just hung forever
What could I be doing wrong?
I checked out wireshark to see what was happening with the 'tftp' command and it would always say port unreachable. I am using port 69 on my tftp server, if the ping command didn't work the tftp command probably isn't going to work either
The firewall is connected DIRECTLY to laptop via ETHERNET. I tried using interface 0, but it failed. Interface 1 worked just fine. I don't know if this makes a difference or not.
I am going to try to put a router in between the two to see if it will help me at all
