Greetings!
We have two Nortal (Tasman) SR 1002 routers, and no access to the logins due to 'employment changes' at our company.  I am looking for direction as to resetting the two units to a factory reset.  Can I use the AUX port in the rear and terminal into the units?  At this point, we just need to get these reset so we can change the settings as we do not have the logins.

Thanks1

It has been a while since I have been near Nortel routers but I don't think there is a reset to default button.

I also don't remember if you can remove the flash card from those, but if you can, if you delete the system.cfg file from the flash card, then at the next boot it will be back to factory defaults.

If you can get that far the default username and password are:
Username: admin
Password: setup

There are four ways to restore factory default configuration settings. Remember to reboot the router after performing any of the following procedures.
• Clear the contents of the system.cfg file
clear cfg_file system.cfg
• Delete the system.cfg file
rm system.cfg
• Rename and remove the system.cfg file
copy system.cfg system.bk
• Restore factory defaults
system reset-to-factory

After performing any of the above options, the system.cfg file no longer exists. Subsequently, a "file not found" error message is displayed upon rebooting the Secure Router. This message will not impact operation, and it should be ignored.

Alternatively if you have a console connection setup restart the router and send "Enter" as it boots - that should get you into the config OS, type "?" for a list of commands although I think "X" followed by Enter should prompt you to confirm a reset.


Edit: As Rick_O_Shay previously posted here (!) :)

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

The manual shows it as a straight through db-9 to db-9
