Configuring MENUS in cisco routers

Hi, i have two Privileges setting up. One for Admins and one for Support guys. Can i have Menus displays ONLY in Support privilege (5)? If i make a telnet connection (Privilege 15) i get the Password prompt, but if the support guy make a telnet (Privilege 5) he'll get a Menu options or the Password prompt?

Re: Configuring MENUS in cisco routers

Hi, I have been looking into using menus to limit the commands that some users can have access to and I think that I have found the solution to your problem.

Set up a username for your support people with an autocommand function which starts the menu. When they login, they will get presented with the menu. Your Admin people will use a different username and not get the menu.

Good Luck, Neil
