I am configuring my Cisco router and trying to set up access levels. I was under the impression that level 0 was a very limited mode which almost only allows users to enter the enable command to enter privileged exec. However, I'd expect that if priviliged exec had a password set, that it wouldn't just let me access it without a password, but this seems to be the case.
I did the following:
router#config t router(config)#enable secret somePass router(config)#line 0 router(line-config)#password passForConsole router(line-config)#login router(line-config)#exit router(config)#exit router#disable router exit
And I'd expect that after trying to log back in, the password would only grant console access, but it is always logging in as privileged exec
router#, so it's bypassing my privileged exec password
Why is this happening and how can I change this?
