Router or ASA

i have a router 1841, i access it through telnet, when i added the VPN remote client to that router, i  now access it through telnet but not with the telnet password but with the username and password access. How can i split this matter, meaning i want to access the router through the telnet password and keep the username and password to access it for VPN remoter users.



thank you

Clearly the answer is no.  Sorry I wasn't more helpful.

We may need to see your line config on the router, but my first guess is that you've configured 'login local' on the line.  Try setting to just use login.


line vty 0 4
password 'P@$$w0rd'
login

I just tried my own advice on a Cisco 1841 that I manage and it didn't work.  Sorry for that.  It would seem, though I cannot confirm this yet, that once you create a local username and password or configure aaa authentication, it overrides the line password.  Perhaps one of the other experts might know off the top of their head.

I'll see if I can confirm that and get back to you.

In my particular case, I am using SSH instead of Telnet, and for SSH connections it IS required to have username and password configured instead of just password on the line.  If you're not using SSH, you should be able to set the line to login without using the local user database.

i can't even put login
line vty 0 4
password xkljsdkflajsd
login (i can't put it alone, either login authentication or login smth else) but not alone

Yeah.  I think the local user database is overriding the line password.  If you still want them separate, you can create a different username password or implement aaa authentication to a RADIUS server.
