I think you are not going to the recovery mode, it wont ask the username password. The procedure is given below:

This procedure mentions how to use the recovery mode for VPN Router 600.

1. Plug in the console cable, the LAN 0 cable, and the DC input cable from the Contivity 600 power supply
2. Start HyperTerminal (or another terminal emulation program) on your PC and connect to the console port of the Contivity 600.
3. Apply AC power to the power supply.
4. Press the RC (recovery) switch on the rear of the Contivity 600 by inserting a paper clip into the hole marked “RC” on the rear of the chassis .
5. The RC switch is located between the LAN 0 cable and the DC input cable
6. On your console you will see the BIOS banner and the Nortel Networks Contivity banner.
7. You will then observe the unit execute its power-on self-test. You can press the switch anytime during the power tests.
8. A momentary press is all that is required. You do not need to hold the button down.
9. After executing the power-on self-test, the console displays the message Booting recovery image

  • Booting the recovery image takes approximately 40 seconds.
  • After the recovery image boots, the Contivity 600 displays the welcome message, the recovery image version, and a prompt for you to enter the administrator’s user name.
  • At this point you are in recovery mode.
  • Enter a management IP address, subnet mask, and gateway if they are not already assigned.
  • You do this from the console menu after logging in as an administrator.
  • Once the unit has a management IP address, you can manage the unit from the Web interface.
  • From the Web browser, enter the management IP address of the Contivity 600. The Recovery Diskette screen appears shown below.
  • From this screen, you can perform the following tasks:
    • Restore the factory default configuration or the backup configuration.
    • Reformat the hard disk of the Contivity 600.\
    • Apply a new software version to the Contivity 600.
    • Perform file maintenance.
    • View the Event log.
    • Restart the system. (except 600 and 1000 series. For 600 and 1000 series, power reset required)
