Hi,

Use the secret password (MD5) instead, which can't be cracked.

Router(config)#username test secret test

Router(config)#enable secret test

When displayed on a cisco router its like this:

username test secret 5 $1$UuqK$HKduW.7M7o6l1rJ8dUs3r1

HTH, please do rate all helpful replies,

Mohammed Mahmoud.

Hi,

We can encrypt Password in Two ways

1, Manual encryption

Router (config) #enable password XXXX

Router (config) #service password encryption

If you give this command it will be encrypted by MD7 algorithm and we can break easily by using 3rd party software?s

2, Automatic encryption

Router (config) #enable secret XXXX

It will be encrypted by MD5 and difficult to break it
