please give me a hand, thanks.

If you want to use external

If you want to use external authorization but not LDAP, then you should use RADIUS. There you can send the "class" attribute (#25) to the ASA which is the group-policy that should be assigned. I'm not aware of any way to achieve this through TACACS+.

Hi Karten,I have the similar

Hi Karten,

I have the similar requirement and I used the ACS and configure Auth profile and map the RADIUS class (25) value as ASA group-policy name (even tried with tunnel-group name), but it does not work. It allows whatever vpn group that user select regardless of the user groups he belongs to.

I use two ACS local users and put them in two different groups and maped those two groups with two different Access rules in the ACS and pointed to correct Auth profile etc.

I am not sure what could be the issue and appreciate if you can advise.

thanks in advance.
