But when I telnet to it, I can not use the password, it does not take any of them. How do solve the problem. Please help me. I don't like to console connect to it everytime.

Hi Jen,

not sure what you have configured exactly, but I suspect that you need to configure a login method under your VTY lines - for example for a login in the simplest form:

!

line vty 0 4

login

password xxxxx

!

The following URL gives more details on options to configure line access. It depends on your security policy which method you choose (there are a few options)
