This is a fun one.
Connect the console cable (null modem, 5-pin, not 3-pin) and turn on the
IP330. Watch it as it boots: there's a 5 second window during which it
tells you to press a key to enter the bootmanager. Note that if you
don't see anything during pre-OS boot, you need to use a different
terminal emulator. Frustratingly, Hyperterm tends to work, whereas
"better" emulators don't.
Once you're in the boot manager, boot the OS in single user mode: "boot -s"
When you get a shell prompt, execute "/etc/overpw" to delete the
previous admin password. Now exit the shell (^-D, logout, exit, etc)
and the system will boot to multi-user mode, its normal operating state.
At this point, the recommended procedure is to access the system configs
via Voyager to set the new admin password. If you don't know the IP
address of the box, logging into it can be problematic, so logging in
via the command line and running "ifconfig -a" to get that information
is a good idea.
Note that simply setting the admin password from the command line via
the unix passwd command is insufficient, as the system config files are
dynamically generated at run time from Nokia's config database. You
will have to set the new admin password via Voyager to make it stick.
