>enable <enter secret password> Router# config t Router(config)# line vty 0 4 Router(config-line)# login local Router(config-line)# password experanswer Router(config-line)# exit Router(config)# username admin password enterthisrouter Router(config)#exit Router# copy run startOnce this is done, you'll be able to log into your router via the Internet using the telnet protocol. When connected, you'll be requested to provide a username and password. Here you'll enter the username "admin" with password "enterthisrouter" and that's it!
