How to Reset the Console Password on the Cisco Router

Question: I'm trying to require a password to be entered (i.e. cisco) when getting into the router and before even getting to the 'user exec mode' prompt.
It would seem that after I set the password 'cisco' and then run the command 'login' in order for the password to be required when getting into the router I shouldn't get the error '% Incomplete command.' and that's why when I currently console in to the router I go immediately to the 'user exec mode' prompt i.e. in my case:
r2
 
Router(config)#line console 0
Router(config-line)#password cisco
Router(config-line)#login
% Incomplete command.
 
The solution:
Added the lines:
aaa authentication login default local
aaa authorization exec default local
 
as described....
 
Using HyperTerminal (directly connected via Console) now requires the appropriate username and password combo to even get into user mode.
And both lines are in my running configuration... Solved the problems.
 
This command also works for Cisco 2901, Cisco 2951, Cisco 2921, Cisco 2911.

Go to authentication login thesis statement generator password default settings. Indicate your email address and you will get new password. This is an alternative option for those who cannot who cannot log in from the first try. I had same issue as you.

A router is connected with at least two information lines from various networks. When a data packet comes in on one of the lines, the router reads the AssignmentHouse system address data in the parcel to decide a definitive goal.
