How to crack password of Firewall Fortigate-60? Read this article to know more detail about Firewall Fortigate.

In our lab one administrator resigned and had gone with password of Fortigate-60 firewall. When we tried to use this firewall for changing new rules of blocking internet traffic, it was asking old password. I read all material of the vendor but did not get success. On the Internet also we did not get proper help.

Only I understood that login: should be maintainer. But there was problem of the password. I heard that we have to type serial number of the Fortigate-60 box. When I entered serial number of firewall box, it was not working and then I dig out and I got success. I hope these steps will helpful to you. Let me know your feedback.

Following are the steps:

1)Connect power supply to fortigate-60 firewall and attached to serial port of the computer.

2)Configure Hyper terminal (proper baud rate and com port, check manual of your fortigate firewall for that)

3)get login: prompt in the Hyperterminal.

4)type Login: maintainer

5)Type password as bcpbFGT-602906523904

6)Here 2906523904 is the serial number of my Fortigate -60 firewall. You change it according to your Firewall's serial number.

7)Mind it!!!! There should not be space between 60 and 2906523904 serial number

8)You will get prompt admin> now

If you are still having some problem. Let me know.
