hi there!
you have no options left. the only possible option to reset password is to do master reset of the box including reset of the configuration

if you can login to the box via http, you can backup your configuration

hm, if you don't have password from your box to access it via web, no options left for you - reset only

http://<lan IP address of your sonicwall>
there is no system password
have you accessed this box before? if yes you can hope your browser saved that password for you ;)

you can try to get the configuration from that unit via snmp (if your box supports it and if that function is enabled)
install mib browser, download mib for that box and perform snmp walk from mib browser on your device.

i think it's the only option you have

you have to connect a cable to the console port of the sonicwall
the ip address of the sonicwall will change to 192.168.168.168

reboot the sonicwall while having the cable connected the yellow light will remain on ( that is your signal that is in safe mode)


the username will be admin
password : password

you should no lost your settings
just reset the password and reboot the sonciwall

good luck !!!

Wrong:
Note: Changing your password from the factory default is optional
but strongly recommended. If you do change your password, be sure
to keep it in a safe place. If you lose your password, you will have to
reset the SonicWALL SSL-VPN 200 to factory settings, losing your
configuration.
this is from:
http://www.sonicwall.com/downloads/SonicWALL_SSL-VPN_200_2.0_Getting_Started_Guide.pdf
if you reset the device, you will lose the configuration

You have to boot with Factory Defaults to clear the password.
