Hi these, sorry for couple stupid questins, i'm some kind of newbie, so lets begin :)

few days in a row i tried to configure it to use it a a router with a nat function, i almost done it, but someone adviced to me to install SDM software to configure it easily without any games with console. so i have done it, and upgraded SDM to ver 2.5 (old one was 2.2), after then i'd made a reset to factory default.

First boot i logged into a console via hyperterminal using cisco/cisco login and pass, i got in with # privilegies, then i started 'setup' utility, entered secred and so on, but anyway after turning on the fe0 adaptor i was unable to get into a console remotely via telnet (guess need to tur it on), however with the previous SDM i did not have such problems in case of factory default. But, the biggest problem is, in second relogin with cisco/cisco account i am getting in, with no prvilegies AT ALL, only as hostname>, not hostname#, and therefore i can do nothing for configuring it, so hpw to turn it on to a privilegied status with #???? do i have to use 'enable' command in a console and then enter a secret, or what??

just let me know, yes or not..

ps many thanks in advance.

Yes, to change from user exec to privileged exec, you have to use the enable command.




If there is no enable password then you won't be prompted for one:



You can configure the vty lines to log you straight into privileged exec mode:

Router(config)#line vty 0 4

Router(config-line)#privilege level 15
