Cisco 3000 VPN Concentrator password issues

Hi,

I have an old Cisco 3005 VPN concentrator that I am trying to reconfigure.  After upgrading it to vpn3005-4.7.2.P-k9.bin, which is the last version, I logged in and change the IP addresses on the public and private interfaces.  In order to continue, I change the URL in the browser to the new IP.  Once I do that, I cannot login.  The page comes up asking for user name and password and typing in the password that I used before the IP change was made does not work.  Any ideas/suggestions ?

Thanks

First make sure there is not some other device using that IP then use a console connection and;

1) Check the networks that are allowed to manage the device via web
2) Reset your password

The device is in my lab, and my wireless nic is off.  I have a crossover cable going from my physical Nic into the private interface on this device.

What I don't get is that the password works before I change the IP address.  Once I change the IP address, the password no longer works.  If I reboot the device (which sets it back to the original config because I have not saved to memory yet), the old password works again.

I am interested by your first idea.  I am not in the office today but will try it first thing Monday morning.  If you have any other ideas, please feel free to send them along and I can bang through them Monday morning and let you know which worked and which did not.

Thanks

While it seems that your answer may be right, we decided to just scrap the box and start from scratch, so I never really got to test this solution.
