hiii guys

i have idirect 3100 modem when i open the option file there is a section titled security with the following data:

[SECURITY]
     password = $idi2$.PLcU.$2...
     admin_password = $idi2$.E6...

is that the admin password and  how to recover it

it is encrypted or hashed

the reason behind this is that my provider give me a user account which i can't use it align antenna

i want to change to express w3 so this will help me alot

i read the article about reset modem pssword is that mean it will give me a new admin password and what is the difference between root account and admin paccount does they have the same password

thank you in advance

You cannot recover the admin password from falcon (the options file).  So your options are fairly limited and your dependency on your provider is significant.  

I would have your ISP provide you a new options file with a temp password.  That will at least allow you to point the system.  Once on the air, they can roll it back with a quick tcp push and 40 second reboot.

You can change the linux level password (for root).  However, the falcon password is set in iBuilder.

Changing the linux level (root) password wont do a whole lot for you, but it will allow you into linux (console) so you can cut and paste a new options file into /etc/idirect/falcon.  

---------------------

password = $idi2$.PLcU....
admin_password = $idi2$....

---------------------

Above is encrypted password

Hi,

If you have the user password for that option file then just copy the encrypted string on the password  line to the admin password line and thats it. Admin pass = user pass

Have a nice day,

Hi,

admin password for the falcon process (which you need while connecting via isite) stored in options file. It is in enrypted form, but if you have a password which you already know in encrypted form then you can copy and paste to mentioned line in the options file and it works.
