Tacacs authentication with dedicated passwd file

Unanswered Question
Aug 26th, 2010

Hi all,

i'm trying to setup a tacacs server (the free version for linux). It is possible to use the linux /etc/passwd file to store the users/passwords.

But i am trying to setup a dedicated passwd-style file to keep the tacacas users seperate from the linux OS users.

There is a command in the tacacs config like: 

default authentication = file /etc/passwd

enable = file /etc/passwd

How can i use a seperate file for this authentication type? I used the statemend "default authentication = file /etc/mypasswd.txt"

but this does not work

The mypasswd.txt looked like this:



None of these statemens worked for me and i always get "authentication error"

I was not able to find a documentation about this. Does anybody know if this is possible at all, and how the mypasswd.txt must look like??

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.
