Re: password

When you attempt to go to enable mode are you prompted for a password?

If you are you prompted then need to do a password recovery if you don't know your password.

Password recover link below:

You have created an enable password if you have already followed the guides below.

If you are not prompted for one but would like a password set you use the enable secret command

example

enable

config t

enable secret cisco

/end example

This will set a password of cisco for those trying to get into enable mode.

Here is a document on the enable secret command

Here is a document to set the enable password. A little old 12.1, but still applies
