Disable password for privileged Exec mode via Telnet

I've looked around for an answer for this specific issue but haven't been able to find one yet.  Hoping this is easy and someone can point me in the right direction. 

When logging into a 2950 switch via Telnet, I'm prompted for a password when attempting to "enable" privileged mode.  I want to disable the password requirement for now (home lab, not production).  When I initiate the "no enable password" or "no enable secret" command (via a console connection), and try to initiate the enable command, I receive the message "% No password set".  If I now attempt to enable privileged mode from the console, I'm not asked for a password.  How can I disable the password prompt for VTY mode?

Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion;  I've tried it but am still asked for a password.  

From global config, I entered:

line vty 0 15

privilege level 15

exit

Am I missing any steps there?

Thanks!
