Easy vpn client password

Hi

On my cisco 827 easy vpn client router, when I enter the password to (crypto ipsec client ezvpn xauth), the password is displayed in clear text. Is there a way to mask this?

Re: Easy vpn client password

enter the following command in global configuration mode:

service password-encryption

this encrypts all passwords listed in the router configuration.

Cheers,

Re: Easy vpn client password

hi steve,

this command encrypts all password in the configuration. What i need is for the password to be masked when i key in at the console during the startup EasyVPN tunnel. Can anyone help?

Re: Easy vpn client password

Try entering it already encrypted.

eg. Enter password> 7 XXXXXXX (where X is the encrypted version of the password)

This works on routers, it always shows it as encrypted, and only you know the original.
