Is there an aaa command or server command that limits the maximum number of failed attempts one can try before getting cut off. I note there is one for local. but I fail to find one that applies to aaa that is auth against radius. am I missing somthing or does this not exist.

Or will I have to use aaa accounting, and work this out on my radius server/database schema. anyway, I would

rather not have to work through the details that way, I would prefer there be a way to do this via IOS....this is IOS 12.3 not pix/asa

Thanks for the help!

have you tried, this command,

aaa authentication attempts login number-of-attempts

By default, if user fails authentication (no authorization), then user is allowed 3 attempts. This can be changed using above command.

In above case I am talking about administrative authentication to the device.
