I AM STILL NEW TO THE CISCO SWITCHS, AND WHILE I WAS WORKING I FOUND SOMETHING FOR CISCO SWITCH WHICH I AM WORKING ON IT .
I AM HAVEING CISCO SWITCH 2950 SERIES AND I AM USING THE CONSOL TO CONNECT TO IT .
NOW, MY MANGER ASKED ME TO PROVIDE TELNET CONNECTION TO THE SWITCH WITH PASSWORD.
I DID IT AND ITS WORKING.
HE IS ASKING ME FOR SOMETHING ELSE, HE WANTS TO CRATE USER NAME & PASSWORD FOR EACH USER ON THE CISCO SWITCH WHICH WE HAVE & EVERY ONE WHEN HE IS TELNET TO THE SWITCH HE SHOULD PUT HIS USER NAME & PASWWORD & THEN CONNECT.
MY QUESTION IS, HOW CAN I MAKE THIS TO WORK WITHOUT USING ( CISCO SECURE TACKS ) , IS IT POSSIBLE.
exactly, you need to create a username & password for each user. The 'login local' tells the line to check the local database for authentication, that is, to check the username and passwords you have previously configured...
Does that make sense ? Let me know if you need more help.
Instead of using a TACACS+ (or RADIUS) Server to authenticate the users you can just use the local database to do it....
The only problem is that you need to create all the usernames and passwords on the local database.
If that is OK with you, you can just use the following commands:
username USER password PASS
aaa authentication login default local
On the first line you setup a username (USER) and password (PASS) for each user you have. NOTE: Be very careful so you dont get locked out of your switch. First of all, Create a username and password for the administrator (you), then you can create all the rest of the users.
On the Second line you tell the Switch/Router that it will take from now on a new database instance. (In this case it is gonna be a local database).
On the third line you tell the Switch/Router that it will authenticate every login attempt with the local database of users (the one that you just created).
How many users are going to be loging on to the Switch??? If you have so many I'm pretty sure that your best option is TACACS+ or RADIUS (NOTE: It can be an OpenSource TACACS+ or RADIUS Server, It doesnt have to be a Cisco Secure ACS Server), but, if you have less than 20 users I guess that the local database its going to be enough.
If you need any other information please do not hesitate in contact me.
