    Odbg newbie question (finding passwrod)

    Hi guys,

    Here is my issue...

    I purchased a monitoring software, installed the agent on the target PC, and the viewer on my PC.
    I'm going to attempt to explain the way (I think) it works:

    Background Info:
    =======================
    I install the viewer on my PC and activate it with a purchased (obtained) serial
    I then generate an "agent installation" file and install it on the target PC
    Once you install the agent on the target remote or LAN PC
    You query your viewer (on my PC) for any PCs on LAN or WAN
    It finds the target PC, click on it, and you're prompted for a password & port # to connect to that remote PC
    You then have to go to the vendor's "password page" to retrieve the password and port #, which is needed to cnct to the target PC
    You enter that info & Voila!

    Everything worked fine until a few weeks a go when I realized that the vendors website is gone! they're out of biz...(I guess)

    Luckily target PCs on which the agent is already installed still work fine, but I can no longer add new target PCs...Ok I stand corrected, "I CAN" but I cannot retrieve that specific agent password and port # from the vendor's "password page". Also if any of the already monitored PCs crash, I can re-install a new agent, but I would run into the same password and port retrieving problem!!!
    =======================

    I think the specific agent password is somewhere (stored/hidden) on target PC's hard drive. So I'm thinking of a two-prong strategy: short term & long term..

    Short Term:
    I'd like to be able to retrieve the pass and port #, since I have access to target PCs, as well as the actual agent installation file, since I generate it using the viewer, then I install it on the target PC.

    Long Term:
    Ideally, it would be nice if we can change the actual code on the agent installation file so that it passes a fix password and port number to the PC it is installed on.

    I've done some reading and I've downloaded ollydbg and tutorials, but I have no idea where to start?, what to look for? and how? The software I'm using is not your typical software, where you install it, click on the exe and you're prompted to enter your pass....To my knowledge, that's relatively easy to patch. In this case I'm at loss as to even how to load a correct file onto odbg, coz there is no such file (at least not visible to me)...on the target PC!!! and that's why I'm seeking some guru's help and guidance...

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you in advance!
