cisco/cisco didn't work

I have an enable password which I can use when in PDM, with no username.

How do I change the telnet/SSH password?

sorry,

pix should be the user name.

the telnet password you can change by typing

passwd newpassword from global configuration mode.

the ssh password is bound to a username so you would have to type

username yourusername password secret password
ssh host ip 255.255.255.255 inside

I just tried it again:

telnet worked with just the passwd.
SSH used pix as the username and the passwd.

Thanks
