I have just reset my pix to factory mode to get a fresh new config on it and only added back what I needed all is working fine. I have given it an enabled password and can logon over ssh now using the default user and the enable password which i set up on the pix. I wanted to create a local user and password instead of using the pix username. I noticed when i dont have a enable password set for the default username"pix" I cannot logon on to the pix. I actually like the idea of not allowing the default user access to the pix, and I plan to emove the enable password for "pix"
The problem is now that when i try to create a local user i get this error.
aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL (pix accept this line)
username hugh password faxination encrypted privilege 15 (with this line i get the error below)
Encrypted password is of incorrect length
Username addition failed.
Regardless if i make the password smaller or bigger, i get this error regardless.
Any help on this would be appreciated.
