User Level Password

I am having serious brain failure....how do I set the user level password so that it prompts for a password as soon as I connect? I set a password for the line console, but it still does not prompt me for a password when I first connect, it just goes directly to the > prompt.

Please help.

Thanks.

Re: User Level Password

When you connect the console port, then access the router through the console you would be prompted for password.

I think you have forgotten to give the command login

The sequence of commands would be

line console 0

password xxxxxx

login
