Re: starting with Tacacs+ server

You must be refering to dial-in users. Use Radius protocol.

If you want network WAN administrator to be allowed to get into your network & make some router configuration changes etc. then use TACACS+

For both above you require

ACS version 3.0 - Cisco Product to be installed on NT 4.00 (Build 1381)

Service pack 6 (128 bit high encryption) & Internet Explorer

For dialin users you will have to configure aaa commands on the router from where your users are calling.

For network administrator you have to configure all routers as aaa clients & also configure on ACS 3.0 TACACS+

Hop I hv answered yr query do write in case u hv furhter clarification
