Re: TACACS or Radius daemon on Linux

  • From: Dean Anderson
  • Date: Tue Oct 19 18:57:44 1999

I'm not currently running Radius on linux, but I expect there are several possibilities that will run fine under linux.  A good list was just posted here several days ago.

You certainly don't want to be putting accounts on each box, especially if you have more than one.  

Your cisco's will do both tacacs and radius.  Somehow, Radius seems to have beaten out tacacs in popularity though.

Also, you might want to consider using RADIUS for accounting instead of syslog or none at all.
