5820 login password

I have a 5820 that I had someone set up with the Web gui.  A user account and password was created and I can log into the GUI.


However when I try to telnet into the switch, I get an error message "Login password not set!"  and am disconnected.


I cannot find anywhere in the GUI to enter this password and the manuals are useless.  

Has anyone encountered this issue?

Re: 5820 login password

I suppose the only way to change it is on the console, is that correct?

on the console you have to set:



user-interface vty 0 15

  authentication-scheme default



never used the webinterface before :-)

I had them log into the console and put this on, that did the trick.  Thanks!
