Change telnet password on ASA

Hi,

On my ASA if I SSH to it I can put the same username and password I use when I use the ASDM, however when I tlenet to the ASA it just says password, I simply put in "password" and it lets me, then asks for my username and password, how do I change this first telnet password?

Re: Change telnet password on ASA

Your telnet line pulls from the enable password if you don't have AAA authentication enabled. You can change the password with:

enable secret

Re: Change telnet password on ASA

I disagree :)..

For your password, you need to enter this

ASA(config)#passwd your_telnet_password

annd one john said, to change the enable commmand, you need to enter

ASA(config)#enable password your_enable_password

Enable password in ASA is equivilant to enable secret in router/switches. There is no enable secret in ASA.

pls rate if helpful.

Re: Change telnet password on ASA

Hi,

I managed to change the password.

What is confusing (could AAA be enabled):

1.) If I login via telnet I get prompted for a password which I enter, then I get to the user mode (I think) and then type enable and it have to enter my priviliged 15 username and password which I use for the ASDM or SSH.

2.) If I login via SSH I have to enter my level 15 username and password, then when I type enable I have to put my level 15 password in again and not the enable secret password I use in telnet.

All this sound normal?

Re: Change telnet password on ASA

can you please share the credentials part of your configuration? You may change the encrypted passwords if you want the security ...

Re: Change telnet password on ASA

For the record, I was wrong. :-) Mohsin was right about passwd changing the telnet password. As for the other, can you post the config? It doesn't make sense.

HTH,
