Hey you guys, I stumbled across these posts while researching how to recover/remove unknown passwords from a Cisco PIX 501 that I have. The documentation posted at worked like a charm.

I followed the instructions step by step, I connected the PIX to a LAN switch via Ethernet0, assigned it a local LAN address, downloaded solarwinds tftp server as well as the corresponding .bin file for my PIX sotware version. I ran the tftp server on the laptop I was using to console to the PIX, specified my laptops LAN IP as the tftp server, everything work without a hitch, I was able to remove all the passwords.

Thanks a lot for the info!
