Last Modified: 2010-08-05
I got a Cisco Catalyst 2912XL.  When I console to it, I can login to it.  When I telnet to the catalyst through ip, it asks me for a username?  I look at the running-config and don't see a username anywhere in it.  I am able to get access to the global config wih no problem through console but I need to get access through telnet.  Any clues how to get rid of that username?

This is of extreme emergency.
