Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The passwords will npt expire. You will need to create a password if you want to telnet into the device. It it always recommened to have some level of security on the device. I couldn’t have sed it better myself

===============
Use SSH to manage devices rather than telnet. Telnet is cleartext and credentials can be captured on the wire.

There really is no “default password” on a fresh 1841, and passwords that are set have no expiration timer. You will need to set up one on your “VTY” lines so you can remotely access the device – either through telnet or SSH
