Description:

Follow these steps to add a user to the list of VPN users in a Cisco router.

To Resolve:

  1. Open Putty and remote into the router: 10.10.10.254 / Port 22

    username: test
    password: # Enter password
    cisco>enable
    cisco> # Enter password
    cisco# config t
    cisco(config)#group-policy remote attributes
    cisco(config)#username gerry password Pa$$word
    # If you want the user to have privileges, you enter "privilege 15" for root access after the password. 
    # So setup is username/password/privilege in one line.
    # Example:
    # cisco(config)#username gerry password Pa$$word 15
    
    cisco(config)# write mem
    
  2. At this point, the user can VPN in. To see your current VPN users, type:

    show config
    
    • Tap the space bar to go to the very bottom and then manually scroll up to see if the user is there.
  3. If you ever need to delete a user enter the following:

    username: test
    password: # Enter password
    cisco>enable
    cisco> # Enter password
    cisco# config t
    cisco(config)# group-policy remote attributes
    cisco(config)# no username gerry
    cisco(config)# write mem
    cisco(config)# exit
