Default Password

The factory default passwords for the Cisco VPN 3000 Series are:

username: admin

password: admin

Step-by-Step Procedure

Complete these steps in order to recover a password:

Connect a PC to the VPN Concentrator with a straight-through RS-232 serial cable between the console port on the VPN Concentrator and the COM1 or serial port on the PC (Cisco supplies the cable with the system).

Start a terminal emulator (HyperTerminal) on the PC. Configure a connection on COM1 with port settings of:

9600 bits per second

8 data bits

no parity

1 stop bit

hardware flow control

Set the emulator for VT100 emulation, or let the emulator auto-detect the emulation type.

When the Concentrator boots, and after the power-up diagnostics check is complete, a line of three dots (...) appears on the console, a sample of which is shown here for reference. Press Ctrl-C within three seconds after you see these dots. This displays a menu that lets you reset the system passwords to the defaults.

Boot-ROM Initializing...
Boot configured 128Mb of RAM.

!--- At this second set of three dots, press Ctrl-C.
