telnet connection error

I am getting the following error on a 4908l3-G switch when trying to telnet to the IP address. "Password required, but not set".

I can console into the unit what am I looking to change to stop this from happening.

Re: telnet connection error

That is the default behavior of all IOS based platforms. Using console session, set a password and you should be able to telnet. Set passwords under line vty 0 4 and also an enable password. The following page should help as well

For example, if you want cisco to be the password, do the following

config terminal

enable password cisco

line vty 0 4

password cisco

end
