TACACS+ Question

Hi All,

sorry if this is the wrong place for this. TACACS+, where can I get it.? My limited understanding of it, is, it's an application that is installed on a server, and allows management of user access etc.? Correct me please, if I'm wrong. Cheers.

As per ur understanding its a seperate S/W installed in linux/unix/solaris systems (coz i have seen it installed over on these servers).

Re: TACACS+ Question

You can find more info on TACACS and RADIUS in the AAA group. Cisco has a product you can run on a Windows box called CiscoSecure Access Control Server (ACS). They provide a 90 day eval version that contains both TACACS and RADIUS systems plus a full management and accounting/audit trail system. You need a CCO logon to download. Price per license is about $1800. You only need a license per server, and two servers is recommended (for redundancy).

Check out the AAA group first.
