Password not set.

hi all

i hope this is the correct area to post.

i am doing my CCNA and want to overcome a small problem.

when trying to 'telnet' into my 2610 router i get the

'Password not Set' message and then disconnected.

i did see a mention of this among the pages and pages of cisco support area.

the ping is successful, and i do get the banner MOTD shown as i telnet in.

so suggestions please, and have i posted enough info?

regards

c

Re: Password not set.

Hi

You can get onto the router via console port and configure the password for the same under the line vty 0 4 which will set the telnet password for the router.

!

line vty 0 4

password cisco

!

Also do check up whether you have configured either enable password or secret to get the privilege access to configure the router..

Re: Password not set.

hiya

thanks for that.

basically that is what i am doing.

i use the standard 'cisco' and "class" passwords.

this is some kind of bug in the IOS software or router.

that is not saving or updating or something.

maybe i need a later ios ;)

Re: Password not set.

Hi

You can check for the config-register instead of upgrading the IOS in the box.

Do check whether you gotta 0x2102 ,i feel its 0x2142 which is there configured at present in ur router.

do change the same back to 0x2102 and check..

Re: Password not set.

hiya

thanks for the help.

well i have configured my second box, and

i can ping and telnet into it.

therefore it may well be a software glitch.

it is an earlier version of the ios. 11.3 working.

and the failing one is 12.1.
