    Well since all this Cisco stuff is relatively new to me...I wanna try and make somewhat of an educated guess and say B icon_confused.gif

    I would go with D

    What's the answer?

    The answer is D.

    Service password-encryption will encrypt the priviledged mode password (enable password dohickyjober) The encryption does not match the DES (think that's the standard encryption algorithm.

    Something along those lines is on page 630 something on cisco's firstyear companion guide textbook

    Sinexec and Dokudorf, you are both correct. The answer is D.

    Option A will allow you to encrypt an enable password, but only the enable password. Option D will allow you to not only encrypt the enable password but also the console, AUX, and VTY passwords at the same time.
