AAA Configuration

Answered Question

Hi There,


I configured AAA on my switch as follows:


aaa new-model

aaa authentication login default group tacacs+ local


After enabling the above commands I got AAA to work on both Telnet and console access without applying:


line console 0

login authentication default

line vty 0 4

login authentication default


My question is why was the AAA authentication activated on the console 0 and vty 0 4 lines without applying the AAA config on them? And since this has happened how can enable AAA only for telnet access and not for console or vice versa?


Regards,

Haitham

That is what the "default" is for. Just don't use the default and make up another one. That one will only apply to the interfaces you activate it on.


Mnay people use the name CONSOLE for the console but it is just string of letters there is nothing special about it.
