    Forgot McAfee N-450 Password


      So I booted my N-450 security appliance up and come to realize I forgot the password. According to McAfee you have to go through a process of reinstalling the software. Anyways, I got on the ftp site (https://menshen1.intruvert.com/image/netboot_N450/) and downloaded the "netboot_6.1_N450_v1.tgz" which contains "netboot-N450.cfg", "sitera", "vmlinux.netboot", "vxSecondary"


      Anyways, I went ahead and followed the intructinos of breaking the boot process and I was in "boot>" I went ahead assigned an IP address "ifconfig -i gmac1 -a -g -n" then I was confirmed that the IP has been set. Then I pointed the netboot file that is in our TFTP server. "netboot -o -s -f netboot-N450.cfg" and I get the below error. What's going on?
