    Configuring Simple Vty Line Authentication

    To configure simple authentication:

    1. Specify a vty line or a range of vty lines on which you want to enable the password.
      host1(config)#line vty 8 13host1(config-line)#
    2. Specify the password for the vty lines.
      host1(config-line)#password 0 mypassword

      Note: To use an encrypted password or a secret, you must follow the procedure in Setting Basic and Enable Password Parametersto obtain the encrypted password or secret. You cannot create your own encrypted password or secret; you must use a system-generated password or secret.

    3. Enable login authentication on the lines.
      host1(config-line)#login
    4. Display your vty line configuration.
