    Is there a way to configure a router so that it asks for a username and
    password in order to get access to privileged EXEC mode? In other words,
    when you type enable, it asks for a username and password.

    I thought something may be possible using the aaa authentication group
    of commands. If it is possible, and you've got a working config which
    uses this, please post the config on here.

  2. Yes, you must configure AAA on the device and tell it to use the local
    username/password database. Config examples are on CCO.
