Overview

Find out how to locate your encrypted password using information from your Cisco Router.

Environment

  • Engineer's Toolset

Resolution

 

From a Cisco router or switch configuration file, you can extract the password from a saved or printed configuration file. You can also download the current configuration directly from the router or switch without knowing the password. All you need is the read-write SNMP community string. For more information on downloading a Cisco configuration, see Online Help file for: Cisco Config Viewer.
