Hi Ricardo

You cannot recover the password. If you can console to the device than use
the serial number as the user ID and the password, but it will reset the
device to the factory default. The password encryption is not exactly MD5,
it look more like a blowfish kind of encryption and even with a fast
computer and the right program to crack the password will take you months if
not years to crack it. Your best bet would be, of course you have to have a
backup of the configuration, to reset the device to the factory default,
copy and paste the configuration onto the device and change the set admin
password line to the new password before you paste it.
Sorry for the bad news.

Dear Colleagues,


I am really needing your help.

I`m in a position of not having the password for one of our critical
netscreen 10 firewall.  Does anyone know
of a way to obtain the password? Wiping the configuration completely is
not an option. I can also connect via a console cable if necessary.

Any assistance will *greatly* appreciated!

Regards,

Richard
