BGP MD5 password

I am running BGP with neighbor passowrd command on it. I did implement the service password-encryption comand. But when I do a show run to my config and I still can see the BGP password.

neighbor [ip_address] password 5 [password]

Is there any additional command I have to have the password encrypted?

Please let me know.

Thank you.

Re: BGP MD5 password

You should not use:

neighbor [ip_address] password 5 [password]

simply use:

neighbor [ip_address] password [password].

As you already have service password-encryption enabled. Your password should show up in encrypted language using above command.

I dont have link explaining password encryption types(0-7) handy. May be someone else can provide that.

Re: BGP MD5 password

Hi, the command...

neighbor [ip_address] password [password]

...is already an MD5 encrypted password. You don't need to put a number before the [password]

Regarding the number [0-7]

[0] means encryption disabled.

[7] means encryption enabled. This is the default.

I think if you put a number from 0 to 6 (or any number as long as it is not 7), the encryption will be disabled.
