Cisco Router Telnet Access

hi,

i have a Cisco 3845 router.  i have configured for telnet access and set a password.  i can get in just fine.  the issue is it's not prompting me for to put in "en" and prompt for password.  once i telnet in, i just type en, config t, and away i go.

i need this to prompt, i have done it before, i just can't remember the command.

thanks.

yeah i tried that:

#enable secret password

but no go.  is there something else?

when i'm on the console, it does what i want, i type en and it asked me for the password again.

could you show us what you have at the bottom of your configuration for the vty lines?

RPPreacherCommented:
Did you do both of these?

R1(config)#enable password cisco
R1(config)#enable secret router

just follow those lines exactly.

I believe that the "privilege level 15" on your vty lines gives the telnet sessions full access, bypassing the need for the "enable secret" lines.  If you remove those lines from your vty lines, and add the lines that RPPreacher stated, does this help?

Try again to add the commands:

Router#config t
Router(config)#enable secret <password> priv 15

What error do you get? Post it,if you can.
