before you type copy run start type exit once more to exit global configuration mode.

This is assuming that he already has access to the router !!!  If you need to crack the password, follow the information in the link:

dean dodd got it backwords in his configuration though. "line con 0" is where you set your console password, and "line vty 0 4" is where you set your telnet password.
