How to set vty lines password


Virtual terminal lines (vty) are used to allow remote access to the router (by telneting through its interfaces). The router has five virtual terminal lines by default.


Router(config)# line vty 0 4

Router(config-line)# password techtip


Setting Privileged Access Password


To set a local password to control access to various privilege levels, use the enable password global configuration command. Use the no form of this command to remove the password requirement.


An enable password is defined as follows:

  • Must contain from 1 to 25 uppercase and lowercase alphanumeric characters.
  • Must not have a number as the first character.
  • Can have leading spaces, but they are ignored. However, intermediate and trailing spaces are recognized.

Router(config)# enable password techtip
