Assign IP Address

Enable SSH/tty and login on Cisco Devices

(config)# line vty 0 4
(config-line)# transport input all
(config-line)# login local

(config)# ip domain-name
(config)# crypto key generate rsa

# enable ssh v2
(config)# ip ssh version 2 

Add a user for remote access

configure terminal
username user1 password mypassword
                                # create a user with password
username user1 privilege 15 
                                # configure privilege     
enable password mypassword
                                # setting enable password                         
### Sample
username cisco password C!sco123

username cisco privilege 15
username cisco role priv-15

enable password C!sco123
feature privilege
enable secret 0 admin priv-lvl 15

Configure Router interface

R1#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
R1(config)#int f0/0                           
R1(config-if)#ip address

R1(config-if)#int loop 0                         
R1(config-if)#ip address   

R1(config)#int f0/0
R1(config-if)#no shut

Configure routes

R1(config)#router ospf 1
R1(config-router)#network area 0

R2#sh ip ospf neighbor
