This kind of questions is barely allowed here at LQ. Even if your intentions are genuine, we cannot tell for sure if you're truly trying to recover a password for your system or if you're trying to force a login to a system for which you don't have permissions, instead. Please look at the link posted above and good luck! This thread closed.
