You can configure aaa accounting exec to send accounting records that will show who has logged in to your routers (and it will show from what IP address they have logged in). You can also configure aaa accounting commands 15 that will send accounting records that will show the privilege commands that are entered (including all config changes).

Re: Router login

As Richard notes, TACACS can log individual changes. However, I believe if the router has a valid external time source, and an authenicated user, it will record the user ID and time in the config file and will note the change in the syslog. This wouldn't indicate detailed changes, only when something was changed and by who (user ID) (and source IP?).

Another alternative, some external packages will track config changes. For instance, I've worked with Cisco's NCM. Such a package will provide not only who changed the config (requires authenicated logon?) but can show before and after configs with changes highlighted.

If you don't have a TACACS or RADIUS but you have a SYSLOG server, use the "archive" commands.
