How to assign password for privileged mode,console and telnet.


Setting Password for Privileged mode.Go to global configuration mode and enter this command

Previleged mode Password



Router(config)#enable password cisco
Router(config)#enable secret cisco1

In this password is clearly visible to all if we give command show running-config.But enable secret will encrypt those passwords.

We can see both passwords in running configuration because,Old routers doesn't support this new command
enable secret.

Some people will save running configuration to a notepad and they will copy and paste  those configuration to other routers in global configuraion mode.Old routers doesn't support enable secret that time atleast enable password will be accepted by the router.




Line Console Password



Router#config t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#line con 0
Router(config-line)#password cisco
Router(config-line)#login
Router(config-line)#exit




Telnet Password Virtual Terminal

Router(config)#line vty 0 4
Router(config-line)#password cisco
Router(config-line)#login
Router(config-line)#exit
Router(config)#





Auxilary Port Password


Router(config)#line aux 0
Router(config-line)#password cisco
Router(config-line)#login
Router(config-line)#exit
