    My company has recently received a used PIX 501 Firewall Version 6.3(3)
    which we are wanting to configure and use on our network. I have so
    far been unable to reset the password using the password recovery
    procedures given to me by Cisco. When I attempt to download the
    password recovery file (np63.bin) through tftp, it gives me the
    following error:

    tftp [email protected] via
    TFTP failed (return:-10 arg:0x1)

    I have tried other .bin files, but with no luck. Anybody know what I'm
    doing wrong?

  2. I'll have to guess here, but the two most likely causes are:
    1) that the file is not in the default directory used by the tftp
    server; or
    2) that the file (and associated directories to that point) do not
    have permissions to be read by the tftp server process

    Hope this helps.
