I have setup my username and password on a Cisco 2950 switch for security. My computer is connected to the switch with a console cable.
When I restart my switch I get prompted for the enable password only.

Problem.
I do not get prompted for a username and password - Why ??- What am I doing wrong in my configuration.

These are the commands I have loaded on the switch.
enable secret Cisco1
username admin privilege 15 secret  Cisco
