We are logging to our router remotley using just the line vty password and the enable password (no RADUIS or TACACS), is there any way to send a syslog message to the syslog server when a user tries to log into the router, becuase there will be no user name we will need to see the user IP address.

Thanks in advance..

I have this problem too.

It used to be that there was not any way to do what you are asking. But Cisco introduced an enhancement to login beginning in 12.3(4)T which does support this. This link has good information about it:

you would use the commands:

login on-failure log

login on-success log

to enable this function.

I have not actually used this enhancement, but the documentation indicates that it will log the source address of the login attempt.
