ACS and Post dial Terminal window.

I am using a 3660 as a RAS solution. I am authenticating users with Cisco Secure ACS and then proxying the authentication to SecureID ACE Server. I qam using a post dial terminal window. Is there a way to change the prompt that the user sees on the client? At the moment it is Username then Password. I would like to change it to UserID and then Passcode. Also when authenticated the screen shows "entering ppp mode" it displays the IP address assigned to the user and then loads of characters. Can I stop this being displayed?

Any help would be great.

Re: ACS and Post dial Terminal window.

Thanks for that advice it worked excellently. Can anyone shed any light on the last part of my problem? The spurious characters seen after user has authenticated.


Re: ACS and Post dial Terminal window.

Try adding "ppp lcp delay 30" and "ppp direction callin" under your group-async interface; this should delay the spurious characters from appearing in the post-dial termal window for around 30 seconds, i.e. it waits for the client to start sending the control characters to start PPP. Also, I added a slip-ppp banner which has two purposes: the IP address information isn't shown and it acts as information to the users to press Continue (F7) or Done depending on the Windows client in use.
