I hope this is the correct section to ask this question, I am setting up a new 2811 router (moving from a 2611). We have local usernames on the 2611 for authenticating ssh connections and some PPTP sessions. The passwords associated with the usernames are encrypted when viewing them with a sh run or in a config copied to tftp but on the new router the psswds. show as plain text. Is this because I do not yet have the aaa set up as it is on the old router? is there a better way to do this on the new router (locally, not authenticating to a second box)?
Give the command,
on configure terminal.
This should encrypt the password of the account, so that its not visible.
