Answers: CLI Passwords 1

By certskills September 12, 2015 12:05

Protect the console. Protect Telnet. And protect enable mode. All basic tasks, and all a useful and necessary starting point for learning about security for Cisco devices. This lab shows the answer for the related password lab. As always, first look at the lab, create your own answer, and then and then check your answer here.



Example: SW1 Config



Cisco routers and switches allow a simple security method for both the console and for Telnet access. Basically, all you have to do is tell the device to use that method by supplying a prompt for the password (the login subcommand), and then define the password’s value (the password subcommand).

Note that the answer shows the configuration of the VTY password (to support Telnet) with VTYs 0 through 4 as separate from the configuration of VTYs 5 through 15. This quirk of Cisco output has to do with the fact that older IOS versions support only VTYs 0 through 4. You could have used the commands literally shown in the answer example, or you could have used the command line vty 0 15, followed by those same password and login commands.
