setup local username password for cisco switchrouter for telnet access

The example will show you how to go about logging protecting your router or Switch via telnet using full username and password instead of just password. This example will setup a locally significant username and password to access the switch or the router.
Here is how you would setup a local username and password:

Switch1#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Switch1(config)#username adm1 password adpass
Switch1(config)#username adm2 password adpass2
Switch1(config)#line vty 0 4
Switch1(config-line)#end
Switch1#wr
Building configuration…
[OK]
Switch1#

Note, we setup two local users’ adm1 and adm2 with passwords. Also note that Telnet session is not secure since the communication is not encrypted.
