Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Forgot Password To Login To SSH Tunnel

Feb 4, 2011

I am using 10.04 ubuntu and I have forgotten my password to login to a ssh tunnel. It is not the root password on my computer. Is there any way I can find the password out, change it, or just start over and create a new one? I know it isn't a connection problem because I can't login to ssh from localhost either. I've tried reinstalling ssh too.

Fedora :: FC9: Forgot - Partition Doesn't Work - Can't Login At The LUKS Login After Grub Starts

Feb 15, 2010

My computer was working this morning and both hard drives were working fine, then all of a sudden for about two hours I was stuck with this "problem", then after fumbling and moving and stablizing things, then Windows works? See below for details. I've finally reinstalled both hard drives, but the one with the Linux partition doesn't work: it says nothing is discovered on the disk. I can't login at the LUKS login after grub starts, therefore I can't get into Linux, but Windows works?! I used to be able to go directly into Grub when the computer starts, I forgot how to do that but it doesn't matter. If you need details I'd be glad to provide them. I just wondered why Linux doesn't work, but Windows does. I have Linux & Windows on two different separate hard drives

Ubuntu :: Forgot Password To Get Into Ubunut 9

Oct 25, 2010

I read a few pages on how to get my password or reset or whatever and the pages don't apply to Ubuntu 9. They seem to describe older versions of Ubuntu and as i haven't done this before i have no idea where to go with it. One site suggested i add a line into an edit page after getting into the recovery mode but i can't see how. I am using a livecd to post right now. I forgot the password because it took forever for me to get my replacement motherboard after frying the previous one.

General :: Updating Ubuntu 10.04 But Forgot Password

Sep 8, 2010

I am trying to use Ubuntu 10.04 update, but have forgotten the password. If I could get the GRUB prompt, I could use a method I picked up somewhere, but where is the GRUB prompt, which I understand is a bootloader? My installation is single installation on a single partition. I press ESC before the Splash Screen, but just get a square bracket and pressing ESC makes no difference, to the continued boot process, except perhaps make it a little slower. I can use the Desktop and the software I use works fine. There is also something about a 'ring' that requires a password, which I also don't know.

General :: Yet Another Need To Access Forgot Root Password

Aug 13, 2010

I have tried: booting into single user mode (using '1' and 'single' in my bootloader edits) and it still ends up kicking me to the 'myBox login:' prompt booting from a live-CD with no luck - seems my CD drive is hosed, or the system just won't boot the CD

This is a system I set up, literally, years ago, with no need to touch it. It was originally set up as a file server, running SAMBA. I am wanting to add CUPS to it, and possibly a web server if it will handle the load. Currently, it is running Debian 4.0 without a GUI.

My next step, if I can't get into the root account, is to install a new OS (and try to salvage the file shares that exist). I just would rather keep the install that I have, but I need to hack/crack or change my root password.

OpenSUSE Install :: Forgot Crypt Volume Password

Aug 9, 2010

I can't believe that I did not write down the password to my encrypted volume. Had not rebooted in a long time so I had not typed it and now that I rebooted I don't remember what is was.

Is there any way to automate the trial of different passwords? I remember the basic structure of what the password was so if somehow I could automate trying passwords from a list I may have a good change to recover my volume.

If/when I do remember the password. Is there a way to change the password on an encrypted volume? I need to make it something I will remember for sure... or write it down somewhere safe..
