when aaa/cisco secure goes down

My question is, when enabling aaa on the router to use Cisco secure, if the Cisco Secure server goes down, can you still telnet into the router ? If so what is the command you need to use.

Thanks

Re: when aaa/cisco secure goes down

When using AAA authentication you can specify multiple authentication methods. This means if your primary authentication method is Tacacs+ and the server goes down it will autimactically revert to the secondary authentication method, that being whatever you have defined.

aaa authentication ppp default tacacs+ local

This will force ppp authentications to use tacacs+ as the default and if the server is unavailable then it will prompt for authentication using the local usernames and passwords.

Hope this helps.
