Thanks,

Jeff

Cisco Catalyst 6500 right?

The following website has instructions for what you need...

http://66.102.7.104/search?q=cache:PQ3Nm0hh6bsJ:www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a0080121d15.html+set+up+a+local+username+password++catalyst+6500&hl=en

"Understanding How Local Authentication Works
Local authentication uses locally configured login and enable passwords to authenticate login attempts. The login and enable passwords are local to each switch and are not mapped to individual usernames.

By default, local authentication is enabled. You can disable local authentication only after enabling one or more of the other authentication methods. However, when local authentication is disabled, if you disable all other authentication methods, local authentication is reenabled automatically.

You can enable local authentication and one or more of the other authentication methods at the same time. The switch attempts local authentication only if the other authentication methods fail. "

I think youll need Lrmoore and the other cisco guru's for more in depth...

You answered my question above and I found out the answer to the second one. I did not think it was fair to change my question midstream and possibly wind up awarding points to someone else. Like I said you answered the question that was posted.

thanks.
