ip ftp password [encryption-level] password

Configures

The FTP password

Description

This command sets the password to be used for FTP connections. The default password is appropriate for anonymous FTP connections. If you do not use anonymous FTP, you must use this command to provide an appropriate secret password. The encryption-level allows you to encrypt the password within the router’s configuration, so people who have access to the configuration file won’t learn it. The encryption-level may be 0 or 7; 0 does not encrypt the password, while 7 uses a proprietary (but not particularly strong) encryption scheme.
