Hi, I have a USG210 that I have not used for a long time. I am trying to put it into operation. When entering the configuration it asks me to change the password, but when changing it it returns to the login tab and the password has not been changed, follow the previous one. Upon entering again, ask for the password change again. Does anyone know how I can avoid this circle ???

    Hi @Emailesc,

    Follow the FAQ to recover the configuration and set a new password.

    Then upgrade to the latest firmware version 4.35(AAPI.2) to avoid the password issue in the future.

    How to backup running configuration if forgot password?

    Hi, thanks for your help. I have not forgotten the password, the problem was that I was only changing a number respect to the previous password and the change did not work. Setting a completely different password has let me change it without any more problems.
