hi I am trying to reset the password on a cisco pix,

I can get into the monitor prompt 'type'

monitor>address 10.20.70.160

that seem to have worked but i can't ping the pix or get the pix to ping the tftp server, how do I dd the subnet etc??? because when i add the subnet it does not accept it.  I am not sure where I am going wrong :( please help :(

thanks

You cannot configure the subnet in monitor mode.
Just set the IP address of you device and the IP of the server and the gateway IP.

Try the following:

monitor> interface_id
monitor> address x.x.x.a
monitor> server x.x.x.b
monitor> filename.bin
monitor> gateway x.x.x.c

If you configured the proper interface you should be able to ping the server. interface 0 would be the outside interface, interface 1 would be the switch interface on a pix501, if you have higher end models, user the appropriate interface number.

Execute the tftp command to download the reset tool.

monitor> tftp

where am I going wrong
the bin file is on c:\TFTP-Root\np63.bin

nothing seems to be happening

monitor> interface 1
0: i8255X @ PCI(bus:0 dev:14 irq:10)
1: i8255X @ PCI(bus:0 dev:13 irq:11)

Using 1: i82557 @ PCI(bus:0 dev:13 irq:11), MAC: 0012.d992.c911
monitor> address 10.100.100.1
address 10.100.100.1
monitor> server 10.100.100.2
server 10.100.100.2
monitor> file np63.bin
file np63.bin
monitor> gateway 10.100.100.3
gateway 10.100.100.3
monitor> tftp
tftp np63.bin@10.100.100.2 via 10.100.100.3

Once you type the tftp command it should start to download the file, when dowe it should simply ask you if you ewish to reset the passwords and then reboot.

Since it is on the same subnet, try without entering the gateway.
