Line VTY in Packet Tracer

Configuration logging into my switch from a pc through a console cable and terminal session.

#enable
#conf t
#line vty 0 15
#password ()
#login
#end
#wr
#logout
#enable
#conf

Now my question here is why does it not prompt me for a password when I logout/login or open a new terminal session from another PC???

    vty are telnet lines. Console is:
    line con 0

    If you are wanting to telnet in packet tracer you want to be using the Command Prompt not terminal. The terminal is using a console connection to the switch/router and you have only configured the telnet lines as Welly said. To use the command prompt to telnet open it up then give it the command "telnet 192.168.124.1" but replace with the IP address of the switch

    If you are wanting to secure the console connection you need to configure the line con 0 then you will get prompted when using the terminal

    Good catch Welly_59.

    Switch#config t
    Switch(config)#line con 0
    Switch(config-line)#password cisco
    Switch(config-line)#login
