Compatibility with TACACS server and AR 1220E

Latest reply: Apr 1, 2017 06:34:43 938 1 0 0

Cannot authenticate an AR router with a TACACS server version F4.0.4.27a (which is running on a Linux Debian 8.1, jadro 4.2.6-1).  This KB will illustrate what type of configuration is needed for a compatibility between a TACACS server and a Huawei AR router. <?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

The below configuration is working just fine for FTP authentication with a TACACS server.

Please note that below you may find the configuration of TACACS server plus, version F4.0.4.27a (which is running on a Linux Debian 8.1, jadro 4.2.6-1):

user = huawei { // Please make sure the username is the same.
password = clear huawei123 // Please make sure the password is correct.
member = admin
service = shell {
set priv-lvl = 15 // Please make sure the privilege level is 15
cmd = ftp {
permit .*
set ftpdir = flash:/ // Please make sure there is a default ftp directory
NOTE!!! As a final step, after the configuration is performed please kill the tac_plus process before restarting the server with the new configuration file ”./tac_plus tac_plus.cfg”.
