I'm a newbie to PIX and I just acquired a pix 501 with os 6.3 from ebay. I don't have the password for the 501 and like to reset it. So I tried the following procedures:
.Copy np63.bin to c drive of my pc .Connect the pc to the 501 on port 1 via ethernet and console cable .initial Esc at power up. .Monitor> interface 1 .Monitor> address 192.168.1.199 .Monitor> Server 192.168.1.150 (my pc's ip address) .Monitor>file np62.bin .Monitor>tftp .Monitor>tftp email@example.com .there was not prompt to say yes to download
I tried to ping the pix and got no reply and ping from the pix to the pc and also got no response.
Do I have a bad 501?
Any suggestion is appreciated.
