Add New TACACS+ Server
Add a new TACACS+ server, see Figure 34, next; you need this information:
Enabled—The server must be enabled to do authentication.
Server IP—IP address for the server.
Auth Port—The port authentication requests should come in on; default is 49. You can use the same IP address in more than one host as long as the auth-port is different.
Auth Type—Which type of authentication this TACACS+ server will use; both authentication types transmit the username and password in un-encrypted text and are acceptable when passwords are stored in an external database. Choose either:
ascii—American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
pap—Password authentication protocol (default).
To override defaults for a new TACACS+ server, you can also specify different Key, Timeout, and Retransmit values for this TACACS+ server from the default TACACS+ settings you made above.
Click Add TACACS+ Server to complete operation. Click Save at the top of the page to make changes persistent across reboots.
