Password Recovery on the Cisco ASA Security Appliance
RecoverySoft / December 2, 2018

In this article, I’ll explain how to perform a password “reset” on your Cisco ASA security appliance. The more commonly used term for this procedure is “password recovery” which is left over from the days when you could actually view passwords in configuration files in plain text. Today, such passwords are encrypted and not actually recoverable. Instead, you will gain access to the appliance via the console port and reset the password(s) to known values. This procedure requires physical access to the device. You will power-cycle your appliance by unplugging it at the power strip and plugging it back in. You will then interrupt the boot process and change the configuration register value to prevent the appliance from reading its stored configuration at boot. Since the device ignores its saved configuration on boot, you are able to access its configuration modes without passwords. Once you’re in configuration mode, you will load the saved configuration from flash memory, change the passwords to a known value, change the configuration register value to tell the device to load its saved configuration on boot, and reload the device. Caution: As with all configuration procedures, these procedures should be tested in a laboratory environment prior…

Judgment Recovery And Trusts
RecoverySoft / October 30, 2018

What if you learn that your judgment debtor is a beneficiary of their parent's trust, and the parent died. Is there anything you can or need to do, levying on the trust through the probate trustee? One of many sentence-related articles: I am not a lawyer, and this article is my opinion based on my experience, please consult with a lawyer if you need legal advice. Most often, trusts are handled in probate courts. Trusts are usually not simple, and each state has their own laws relating trusts. In California, there is probate code 15301, which reads: (a) Except as provided in subdivision (b) and in Sections 15304 to 15307, inclusive, if the trust instrument provides that a beneficiary's interest in principal is not subject to voluntary or involuntary transfer, the beneficiary's interest in principal may not be transferred and is not subject to enforcement of a money judgment until paid to the beneficiary. (b) After an amount of principal has become due and payable to the beneficiary under the trust instrument, upon petition to the court under Section 709.010 of the Code of Civil Procedure by a judgment creditor, the court may make an order directing the trustee to…

Recommended Fonts For Technical Documents
RecoverySoft / October 29, 2018

“As the saying goes, type is a beautiful group of letters, not a group of beautiful letters.” – Mathew Carter. I happen to agree with Carter because we do not select a font for every letter, we select a font for all letters. Selecting font is the most important part of formatting and designing your technical document. In my opinion, fonts show your understanding and sense of the document you are putting forward to the readers. For technical documents, the fonts should show your sober, fit, neat personality. Fonts like Bradley, Ravie, Harrington, etc show your fun side, which is not suitable for technical documents. Recommended Fonts: The most suitable fonts for technical documents are SANS SERIF and SERIF groups. SANS SERIF fonts include the Arial, Helvetica, Tahoma, and Verdana. And the SERIF fonts include Times Roman, Times New Roman, Georgia, and Bookman. Definitions: Technical definition of the SERIF term is, “a typeface having small strokes at the end of the main strokes of each character”. In easy language, the SERIF fonts have feet at the end of each letter. According to few researches, it makes it much easier to read the content. As in SANS SERIF, SANS means NO…

What Is the USPS EPacket Service
RecoverySoft / October 28, 2018

In January 2013, the USPS will be increasing their rates for First Class International Mail for packages dramatically. In many cases, the rates to ship a package internationally will double. Although this may seem like very bad news to many Amazon and eBay sellers, there is some good news. The USPS is officially launching a new International Service called Commercial ePacket in the United States. Commercial ePacket is a USPS product offered via the services of a USPS approved Pre-Qualified Wholesaler (PQW). This service seems to be very beneficial to many shippers sending lightweight low value items overseas. Amazon & eBay sellers can now take comfort in the fact that they will no longer have to prepare the documentation and required labels for exporting from the USA. The USPS PQW that you select, will take care of all the necessary documentation. In addition, all eRetailers can now track these packages on USPS.com to the 14 participating countries. Some key features of the Commercial ePacket Service are as follows: Economical eCommerce postal product with tracking and delivery confirmation Lightweight low value merchandise, < 2 Kilos & < $400 value Dispatched as commercial Letter-Post Packets and utilizes overseas foreign prime post network….
