mostly u would hav set the privilege level 15 in the line vty 0 4, juz remove that line in the telnet interface ur probz is solved.

Probably the most common explanation is as Anand says that privilege-level 15 has been configured on the vty lines. I have also seen this situation when the router was configured with aaa authentication and authorization and the user ID was configured for level 15 access. If we could see the configuration we would more likely know the best explanation.

Please post the complete configuration of the vty lines so that we can see whether the problem is what we have already described or is something else.

Thanks for replying

line vty 5 15

privilege level 15

login local

transport input telnet

This is my telnet configuration.

see i wll explain clearly , it is 1841 router in which i configured telnet password and secret password . when i telnet that router it asking telnet pwd , when i give it , it directly going to # mode . it is not asking secret password

And the reason for that is this line in the config:

privilege level 15

This tells the IOS that when anyone successfully logs in on these lines to put them directly into level 15 (privilege or enable mode) without prompting for any additional passwords. If you remove this line then you will be prompted for the enable password.

This is indeed the issue that was mentioned in 2 posts in this thread.
