I have been pouring over the ip command lookup tool and the various mainline command refs to see if you can someone specifiy md5 encryption on line console and/or vty passwords but all I come up with is 7? I do know that you can specify type 5 encryption on local user accounts. Does anyone know if it plausible to conf. type 5 encyption on vty/con 0 password strings?
If you're using the password command on the line, you won't be able to do anything other than service password encryption. If you need md5, your best bet is to use local accounts and aaa authentication:
aaa authentication local default local
username routertest priv 15 secret testpassword
line vty 0 4
login authentication local
This will allow you to have md5 encrypted passwords, and you won't have to do anything special on the line (other than what I put up there).
Anytime you're doing aaa configuration, be sure to be logged in one window and test in another. It's very possible to lock yourself out of a router.
As far as configuring the password command as md5 directly on the line, I don't believe it's possible.
