Netscape LDAP Authentication Password Crack

Last Modified: 2013-12-27
Hi Everyone, I'm back for more help.
We have lost a password used for Netscape replication agreements that were entered in the ./startconsole as follows:
In the Directory Server 4.1 (yes I know that it is an old version but this is a long story)
Configuration Tab
Supplier DN:
Normal Authentication
New Supplier Password

We can't get the ./startconsole function to work remotely for some reason (if you have an idea why that would be good too).  The port that it used to be running on is not LISTENING anymore.  But all the deamons are starting OK....

So we have to hack the password.  I've been browsing the server from telnet and can't seem to find it in a .conf file.  

Thanks again for your help, Allan
