asa/pix pre-shared-key is ****

Hi Guys

So if your anything like me, you've logged onto an ASA or pix trying to troubleshoot VPN connectivity.. you go to check the preshared key and all you see is:

preshared-key ***

damnit!

If your anything like you assumed it was hidden and could not be recovered.. Wrong!

simply do a:

more system:running-config

and you will be provided with the pre-shared-key in all its unencrypted glory!

Enjoy!
