radius & switch

Unanswered Question
Jul 22nd, 2003

I set a switch to use radius server. And I left a backdoor for local. The command as :

set authentication login local enable

set authentication radius enable telnet

But when the radius down, switch still show user/password.When I put username(whatever)/password(login), it failed.


I have this problem too.

What version of code you are running? Please make sure to run 7.5.1 or above for the local user database authentication. Here is the link that explains the details -


In the link, it shows how to create the local user. Please make sure to do this step. Regards,

Yes, I have checked the article. But in the STEP B, it configure radius used local as a backdoor, which catos is from 5.1 to 7.5.1.

I just wander how it works at catos before 7.5.1
