Recovering password from cinternet


I configured my DSL-connection on SuSE 10.1 using cinternet last year.
Now I need my internet account's password for creating a connection on another computer running Windows.
The Problem is that I can't find my documents which contain that password, so I thought it might be possible to recover the password from cinternet somehow, since it has to be stored somewhere on my computer.

Is that possible?
Any other recommendations are welcome, too!

Thank you very much in advance!

If you find it on the computer, it probably won't be plaintext so you won't be able to read it. Your best solution is to get with your ISP, write down the password, and keep it in a safe place.

I already expected something like that.
Well, I guess I'll have to wait until mondays to request my password from the ISP.

Thanks a lot anyway.


password, recovery
