I am having so hard time accomplishing this b/s i am connected through hyperterminal to this pix and i don't know the ip it is assigned nor i have the password to get to it. i read the process listed below from cisco, but i am on the monitor and any command i type is not working b/s the available commands after i enter help are very few including enabe, login, logout, pager and quit. i have the file downloaded from cisco and i have installed tftp.
To use the NP files, put them into a folder accessible by your TFTP server and perform the following steps:
1. Reboot the PIX
2. Enter the Monitor Mode (press Break or Esc to interrupt flash boot) -- this is where i am stock.
3. At the Monitor > prompt, type the following commands:
Interface 1 <Enter> This sets the inside interface for TFTP
Addresses a.b.c.d <Enter> Use the inside interface of your PIX from the map for a.b.c.d
Server m.n.o.p <Enter> Use the address of your TFTP Server for m.n.o.p
File NP63.bin <Enter> Use the file that is correct for your version of PIX OS
TFTP <Enter> To start the download
4. Type y when presented with the question "Do you wish to erase the passwords? [yn]"
