    Hi, There,
    I found interesting project – It is self-hosted front-end UI for tac_plus configuration. My installation was easy, try it. Plus it has some advantages like Backup Maker for auto backup, Subnet searcher for subnets collection etc. Good luck!

      This tool appears to be very useful. I’ll have to experiment with it and amend this article! Thanks for the heads up on this tool.

    Perfect all information you need for both router and server. Thanks ! I tested it with GNS3 environment with a Router c3640 Version 12.4(12), it only works with cleartext password setup on TACACS+ server. When you generate the RSA Key on the router don’t forget to define the size to 1024, otherwise the key is not validated (it’s hidden on the script block).

      Thank you for that piece of information. I hadn’t had any issues with the setup yet but I’m sure your testing will help someone else in the future as well!
