Hello everyone,

I was wondering, if I reset the passwords on my Cisco 2500 router using the following tutorial:

will it erase all of my configurations as well?

Hi joshuaemory,

NO - it just bypasses the authentication - your config is untouched :)

Create the perfect environment for any meeting

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

Following those directions will not change your config at all.  It's actually a simple easy process that anyone with a small amount of Cisco knowledge can do.

Have fun!
