I wanted to know can someone tell me what is needed to get TACACS+ installed for my network.
They at one time used RADIUS but the server nolonger works so they want to move to something
different. I've never installed a TACACS server before so i wanted to know what would it take as
for as money,software etc. to get this done within the next month, thanks in advance and have a
That sounds right.
You purchase the ACS server software package, run it on a server (Windows in that case).
Then you have your devices (routers, ASAs, firewalls, switches etc) to talk to the TACACS to authenticate/authorize/account.

That sounds about right. Only addition to this I can add is that there are two flavors of ACS for you to choose from. One that runs on Windows, and the other as an appliance. Appliance based ACS comes in two flavors too. One running on Windows (ACS 4.x) and one running on Linux (ACS 5.x)
If TACACS is all you're looking to do, ACS 4.x would suit you well.
