Configuring Line Password Authentication

You can provide access control on a terminal line by entering the password and establishing password checking. To do so, use the following commands in line configuration mode:

Router(config)#line console 0 Router(config-line)#password password

The password checker is case-sensitive and can include spaces; for example, the password Secret differs from the password secret, and you can use two words for an acceptable password. You can disable line password verification by disabling password checking. To do so, use the following command in line configuration mode:

Router(config-line)#no login authentication
