password problem

I have configured the enable and secrets passwords on my 2507 router running IOS 12.0, when I go back to user mode and enter the enable command I do not get prompted for a password. It takes me staraight to enable mode, also when I telnet to the router and try to acces enable mode Ican't it says no pass word is configured. Will appreciate any ideas.

Re: password problem

For the telnet, you need to configure the following,

line vty 0 4

login

Regarding the first issue, Did you check in the running configuration (sh run) whether the enable and secret password commands were properly entered ( dont know if there was any mistake while typing)

Re: password problem

I made no mistakes when typing the passwords, thing is when I do a show run I can't see the configured passwords except for vty access. I'm wondreing if its a bug issue I have tried several times. Thanks.

Re: password problem

When you are placed in enable mode are you connected on the console ? If you are your console sessions is still active . what you need to do is do a disc or an exit on the console session , then try to login.

When you are getting password required but none set this means no vty password is set .

line vty 0 4

password cisco

this will set the PW to Cisco

Re: password problem

I do have VTY access configured and I can telnet to the router fine, problem is when I try to access enable mode (after typing in the telnet password), it says none is set and I know I have one configured.
