RE: Locking Cisco Router

Why would you want to do that?  Is it company owned or privately owned?
If company owned, then if you quit or get fired, only you know the
password to the router itself else the next expert will have to
reconfigure the router changing the bits so that the password no longer
exists creating time...
Now if privately owned, as long as the password is never mentioned to
anyone, there isn't any problems. And what version are you with? 250*,
higher? Lower? from where I can see, your answer is no but I could be
wrong...

recovery cant work to enter the router.
