How do I set a telnet password on a 3640???

I know I've done it before,and now I can't get it to work. I entering config t/line vty 0 4/login/ but it won't let me enter login. It wants me to put Authenticaion after it. I am not sure what this means. Can someone let me know what I am doing wrong, or point me to a good web page with instructions. Thanks in advance.

It seems that you have been enable "aaa new-model". What you can do is 'no aaa new-model', and then do it as before. Let me know if i am wrong.

previous answer is correct.If you enable aaa, you need to enter the command 'login authentication "then you can use 'aaa authentication login line'

In line vty 0 4 enter the command "password" followed by the password you want to use.

ex:

conf t

line vty 0 4

login

password cisco

then telnet to the router and type "cisco" for password.

Another way for set up telnet password is the following:

!

#conf t

(config)#username pippo privilege (0-15) password cisco

(config)#line vty 0 4

(config-line)#login local

!

This, allow you to customer the telnet access.
