Hello,

If you have console access, please try the following:

configure terminal

##### Create a new username/password pair ############

username priv 15 password

##### Configure HTTP access using local username ######

ip http authentication local

##### Configure telnet access using local username #####

line vty 0 4

login local

exit

If you want to delete a username, please use the following command:

no username

Hope this helps.

Regards,

NT
