How To Create Users and Login in Cisco Router Or Switch

How To:

This Guide will show you how to create a new user account on your Cisco Router\switch.
By doing this you can grant access to other administrators and monitor changes made on the device.

Solution:

In order to make this work we need to follow two steps:
1.    Create a new account
2.    Configure the device (router or switch to authenticate  users from the local users db).

1.Create Users

Create a new user with the right privilege level.

Router# service password-encryption
Router(config)# username admin priv 15 pass password

2.Authenticate

Router(config)# line vty 0 5
Router(config)# login local

Router(config)# line con 0
Router(config)# login local

Router(config)# line aux 0
Router(config)# login local

Save configuration and try to log on.
