What are the commands to change the passwords on a Cisco 1710 router when connecting via telnet? I have to give someone remote access and want to change the passwords when they are finished?

router#config t
router(config)#line vty 0 4
router(config)#password newpassword
router(config)#end
router#

When done, just enter the same commands with a different password

To change the enable password:

router#config t
router(config)#enable password newpassword
router(config)#end
router#
