Gregory,

By default, i.e. straight out of the box, there are no passwords at all. If
someone has set one, and you don't know it, then follow the link given by
Jens.

Regards,

Reg

i tried to recover the password but no success. still asks for
username and password. this is a PIX 501 with 50U and i tried to
recover the password with np63.bin and doesnt recover. But second
recovery attempt said that there is no passwords to recover. Oh yeah
and i called cisco thursday, they said they will call me in 1 Hr, yeah
right, nobody called me.

Gregory,

I know it is obvious, and I apologise for asking, but you have confirmed
that the software version is currently 6.3 ? As that is the version of
recovery you have used, and it gives slightly strange results if you use the
wrong one. It shows the version when you reboot, and your PC is connected to
the serial port, which it should be for this procedure. If you are connected
to the console port, it should never prompt for a password anyway, unless
you go to enable mode, so you can see the version of software using the 'sh
ver' command.

The reset prodecure should set the enable password to nothing, but I have
known it to take a couple of goes, so it is worth trying again.

If all else fails, return it to the vendor and get them to swap it for
another one.

Hope you get a resolution soon.

Regards,

Reg

How are you trying to connect? Via telnet or Console cable?
