Re: isakmp key not hidden on the router

Hi,

"To encrypt passwords, use the service password-encryption command in global configuration mode. To restore the default, use the no form of this command. "

Reference:http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_3t/secur/command/reference/sec_s1gt.html#wp1204790

I hope this helps.

Best regards.

Massimiliano.
