username & password on new switch

Hi,

In a new Cisco 3750, if the username and password is not configured seperately, what will be the default

username & password. I have only configured enable password.

when we access it remotely via telnet it prompts for username/password.

Thanks in advance.

This is no default username/password included in a switch. You will need to enter the following command.

username password

Obviosuly remove the <> in username and password.

If you don't set this, the only other way you can connect is via telnet, console, and or ssh.

Under line vty you need to enter 'login' and then 'password ' with the specific password.

You need to to enter 'local login' not just login if he is going to username and password under the vty line.

Re: username & password on new switch

You need to to enter 'local login' not just login if he is going to use username and password under the vty line.

Eg.

(config)#username xyz password xyz

(config)#line vty 0 15

(config)#login local

(config)#exit

Thanks,
