AAA vs. pw on line stmt

    What is the relationship between aaa authentication and the password
    statement under vty lines? This is a general IOS question, but the
    specific box is a 3750 SMI with 12.1.

    If I have a configuration with
    aaa authentication local default local
    and some username xxx statements, they seem to override whatever I put
    in the password statement under the "line vty x x" and "line cons 0". My
    question is whether I should even be coding the password -- does it ever
    get used? The reversable encoding of the pw is an exposure which I
    might as well avoid if it is never needed.

    Hello!

    If you configure

    aaa authentication login default local

    then there is no sense to configure password on line vty, because it
    wouldn't be used for authentication. IOS will use configured 'username' to
    check login/password.

    There is no 'aaa authentication local' subcommand as far as I know, though I
    don't have 3750 to check.
