    I've forgotten my PPoE password, but it is in my config.bin file. Is there a tool I can use to read that file?

    You can find it in clear text in the file with any text file viewer

    If all you need is your PPPoE password, then it would seem a lot easier to simply call your ISP and ask them for it. Although I admit decoding config files is pretty cool, it might be a little overkill for this situation.
