Cat3548 Console password

h'mm ... I set the console password on a 3548:

config t

line console 0

password xcxcxc

I copied run to start and reloaded.

But I didn't get propmted for a password when I'm connected to the serial port.

I want to control access to the switch via the console port, how do I do that?

??

Re: Cat3548 Console password

On other classes of switches you also need to issue the following command:

config t

line console 0

login

Thanks ... worked just as I wished.

Followup question:

I'm trying to copy the running config to the console port. I have it in mind to keep copies of all siwtch configs on the laptop form which I'll be using the4 console, as well as on a netwrok share. I understnad I could connect the switch to the LAN and tftp to there and do a manual copy to the laptop, but ....

Re: Cat3548 Console password

Hi,

if you are connected to the switch only via a console cable the easiest way to get the switch config to your laptop is:

term len 0

then start logging in your terminal application

sh run

stop logging.

You'll have a text log file containing the switch config on your laptop.

You can look at it with Wordpad, e.g.

Regards,

Milan
