unable to log in as admin due to lost/forgotten password for the admin

Problem: I'm unable to log in as admin due to lost/forgotten password for the admin account, and I can't retrieve the password using Forgot Password? link because email is not configured or admin has no configured email address.

Resolution: Use the procedure below to reload all settings on FFx40 to factory defaults including the admin password.
1.Attach the included DB9 to RJ45 cable between the PC serial port and the console port on rear panel of FFx40.
2.On the PC, run a serial comm program such as TeraTerm, Hyperterminal, etc set for 115.2k, 8N1.
3.Press the  key in the comm program, and you should see a # prompt.
4.Type ffreset without the quotes and press the  key.
5.Type reboot without the quotes and press the  key.
6.At completion of reboot, all settings in FFx40 will be set to default, including the admin password.
