Here's an example of how to create an enable password in a Cisco router:
- Enter configuration mode by typing "configure terminal" in the router's CLI.
enable configure terminal
- Create the enable password by typing "enable password [password]" where [password] is the password you want to use. For example, if you want to use the password "MyRouterPassword", you would enter "enable password MyRouterPassword".
Note: It is important to choose a strong password that is difficult to guess and contains a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters.
- To enable encryption of the password, enter the command "service password-encryption". This will encrypt the password in the router's configuration file to protect it from unauthorized access.
- Save the configuration changes by typing "write memory" or "copy running-config startup-config" in the router's CLI.
Once the enable password has been set, anyone who wants to access the privileged EXEC mode on the router will need to enter the correct password. This helps to prevent unauthorized access to the router's configuration and sensitive network information.
