Unanswered Question
Feb 24th, 2007


I have a question on the username and privilege levels

These are the commands

username jason level5 password Jas0n

enable secret ***

privilege mode all level5 show

Q1. Can we use different enable secret for differnet levels on the same router to give access to different users?

Q2. When I login to the router enable mode i use the username of Jason and my password, so will that automatically out me level5 mode?

Thx for the help


I have this problem too.

Yes you can. For "enable secret level x somepass", you need to enter "enable x" and use the password associated with that level.

or you can use the "username jason level 5 password Jas0n" for intial login to the router. You can configure your lines (con, aux, vty, line ...) to require a login username/password. When you login with a privilige level > 1, you are immediately in enable mode where you can excute commands associated with your level plus all lower level commands.
