Yes why not....

Be it normal adminstrative user to log into router/switch or whetehr you have configured VPN on your router, every user will be authenticated, if required authorized using aaa commands and you can even account when they logged in and when they logged out, and other then VPN connections in major cases you ca n even accont for what they did, best example would be with TACACS+ for accounting commands ran by users on device after logging in.

For basic understanding, go through following link :


CAUTION : If you are doing aaa for first time on router/switch, make sure console is not under aaa watch. create a named list and apply it on console.

aaa authentication login no_console default none

line con 0

login authentiation no_console

After this play with AAA commands, when stuck use console to get back in and reset/reconfigure as required.

Make a search for AAA on Cisco, you'll find many documents :)
