Newbie question on TACACS server access

Answered Question
Jan 20th, 2010

I worked before on TACACS servers running on Windows but not on Unix. I am new to an environment without any documentation and I need to make sure I have access to the TACACS/ACS config.

I go to my switch config and I see that 'tacacs-server 10.0.0.1'.

Then I ssh into '10.0.0.1' and I see the below after doing 'ls'.

From the below, do you have any idea on how I access the ACS configuration in case I need to alter any parameter there? I tried http://10.0.0.1 but that does not work.

-bash-3.00$ ls
bin         devices     kernel      net         sbin        TT_DB
boot        etc         lib         opt         system      usr
cdrom       export      lost+found  platform    tftpboot    var
dev         home        mnt         proc        tmp         vol-bash-3.00$ ls
bin         devices     kernel      net         sbin        TT_DB
boot        etc         lib         opt         system      usr
cdrom       export      lost+found  platform    tftpboot    var
dev         home        mnt         proc        tmp         vol

I have this problem too.

Hi,

Genrally to access ACS server default port is the server ip address and port in which the ACS gives the gui interface is 2002.so access the ACS server on port 2002 then see are you able access the ACS or not.

Hope to help

Try http://10.0.0.1:2002 because ACS listens on port 2002 by default.

It turned out this is not even ACS.

A previous admin installed whatever open source or hacked system he found and used as TACACS.

Thanks folks.
