vty config question

Hi All,

I saw a config on a router that looked something like below.  My question is what function does the "no login" command have?

line vty 0 4

  password C1cs0

  no login

Thank You - Joe

To enable password checking at login, use the

login

command in line configuration mode. To disable password checking and allow connections without a password, use the

no

form of this command.

You can tell your router/switch to allow the Telnet connections without a password by using the "no login" command.

Generally, we dont recommend using the "no login" command to allow telnet connections without a password unless you are testing something. In production network you shoud always set your vty password for security purposes.
