Through the years, I never put a password on the admin acct. I have been able to log in via the web to my ip address and was able to use winbox.
I needed to look at some settings, tried to get in, and it wants a password, which I never gave it one. I don't know if somebody got into the system and set a password.
The question is, if I return the unit to factory, I will loose all my settings. I found some old backups, .rsc files that may not have the latest settings I have screen prints of some of the settings. What are my alternatives to getting in?
At this point I'm not in a hurry, but the time will come, I'll have to get back in.
