Not sure what i'm missing -


line con 0

login local

no modem enable

line aux 0

line vty 0 4

privilege level 15

password xxx

login

transport input telnet ssh

Have you looked at this specific part of the doc regarding setting up authentication on your router

You are correct. You either need a local username/password or use a AAA server as you cannot use ssh with the line password.


See this doc for detailed steps in setting up config for authentication.
