Hi

you can create the access password using password command under the line config and make sure that you use service password-encryption in the global config so that the password you enter may not appear as it is.

I would suggest you to use privilege levels with AAA enabled so that you can be assured that only authrorized personnel can do the config changes/modifications.

Do you have those commands on your finger tips, im unable to get the documentation for the Router

Re: Configuring telnet user in cisco 2811 router

config t

service password-encryption \

[this will encrypt all the passowrd which are typed in clear text]

line vty 0 4

login (local or tacacs)

password cisco [this is non encrypted]

or

password secret cisco

The line vty is encription 7 which can be decripted.

Hi

you can use the following configurations.

router#config t

router(config)#service password encryption

router(config)# username test password "your password"

router(config)# username test privilege " whatever you want 0 to 15"

router(config)#line vty 0 4

router(config-line)#transport input telnet

router(config-line)#transport output telnet

router(config-line)#login local

router(config)#line vty 5 15

router(config-line)#transport input telnet

router(config-line)#transport output telnet

router(config-line)#login local

router(config-line)#end

router#wr

Thanks and regards

Thanks Mr.Sundaram, I just go one step ahead and ask that for my Jrs I wanted to just give them Level -1 access for which i need to give them a different username and password. What would would be my line configs in that case.
