I am running two Cisco 3750 switches stacked.

I have the console password, but when I log in via telnet, it prompts me for user & pass, which I enter and brings me at my switch>

When I type en or enable, I get the following error message:
% Error in authentication.

Do I need to enable or change another password or something, I'm a little puzzled why I can't access the privileged move via telnet.

Any thoughts?
