Hi,


I am a little bit confused, i believe that VTP was a typo and that you meant VTY, if not please correct me.


Anyway if you meant VTY, "login" instructs the router to authenticate using the configured password under the VTY via the "password" command, while "login local" instructs the router to use local configured usernames via the "username x password x" command.


[edit] Further you can use "no login" to tell the router not to ask for a password in anyway.

Hi,

Sorry,

i meant by VTY. if we are configuring username then only it is applicable "login locally"?

Hi,


No problem, you are very welcomed. Its your call you can secure the VTY lines (for telnet access) via a password only (use "login" and "password x" under the desired VTY lines), or via username(s) and a password(s) (use "login local" under the VTY and "username x password x" in the global configuration, and you can define as usernames as you need, and you can also control the privilege per username in this case), a third option is to use a AAA server.
