Is it possible to deploy TACACS on a VxWorks wireless AP?

If so, how? Is there a link to such a configuration?

I found a Cisco link to configuring the AP in its entirety, but I dont see anything about TACACS.

TACACS is a Cisco-proprietary protocol and likely was never added to VxWorks, though I can't speak from experience.

What device are you using? Aironet 350s can be upgraded to IOS. If you're using 340s, though, you might be stuck without it.

Jeff, I think its a mixture of 350s and 1200s.

I know these devices can use a CLI, although I have never used it.

[EDIT] When I say CLI, I dont mean Cisco CLI (IOS), just a general CLI in addition to a browser interface. [EDIT]

Are you saying that these APs can have Cisco IOS loaded on them, as the Cisco 1242s? If the answer is yes, then of course I can see how TACACS can then be added.

By the way, I know TACACS is Cisco proprietary.
