Hello EE,

I have a temporary support engineer that I need to give access to our router, however I would prefer to setup a secondary account for him to access rather than sharing our primary login.  Before doing so wanted to confirm I can do this and if so what are the commands.

Thanks,

Depending on how login to device is enabled it can be achieved by creating another local router account with sufficient privileges:
username <username> privilege <1-15> secret <password>

Or if you use RADIUS, TACACS+ you need to configure account for that engineer.

However, have in mind that he can see configuration and passwords can be brute forced (Cisco type 5 in a few seconds, type 7 can be cracked by brute force).
