Common Problems in Debugging TACACS+, PAP and CHAP

Cisco - Common Problems in Debugging TACACS+, PAP and CHAP

Document ID: 13864

Introduction

Note: The information in this document is based on Cisco IOS® Software Releases 11.2 and later.

This document examines common debugging problems for TACACS+ when Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) or Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) are used. Common PC settings for Microsoft Windows 95, Windows NT, Windows 98, and Windows 2000 are provided, as well as examples of configurations and examples of good and bad debugs.

Prerequisites

Requirements

There are no specific requirements for this document.

Components Used

This document is not restricted to specific software and hardware versions.

The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

Conventions

Refer to Cisco Technical Tips Conventions for more information on document conventions.

Common PC Settings

Windows 95

Complete these steps:

  1. In the Dialup Networking window, choose the connection name, then File > Properties.

  2. On the Server Type tab, see if the Require Encrypted Password box beneath Type of Dial-up Server is checked.

    • If this box is checked, the PC accepts only CHAP authentication.

    • If this box is not checked, the PC accepts PAP or CHAP authentication.

Windows NT

Complete these steps:

  1. In the Dial-Up Networking window, choose the connection name, and then choose File > Properties.

  2. Check the settings on the Security tab:

    • If the Accept any authentication including clear text box is checked, the PC accepts PAP or CHAP.

    • If the Accept only encrypted authentication box is checked, the PC accepts only CHAP authentication.

Windows 98

Complete these steps:

  1. In the Dial-Up Networking window, choose the connection name, and then choose Properties.

  2. On the Server Types tab, check the settings in the Advanced Options area:

    • If the Require encrypted password box is not checked, the PC accepts PAP or CHAP authentication.

    • If the Require encrypted password box is checked, the PC accepts only CHAP authentication.

Windows 2000

Complete these steps:

  1. In Network and Dial-Up Connections, choose the connection name, and then choose Properties.

  2. On the Security tab, in the Advanced > Settings > Allow these protocols area:

    • If the Unencrypted password (PAP) box is checked, the PC accepts PAP.

    • If the Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) box is checked, the PC accepts CHAP per RFC 1994 .

    • If the Microsoft CHAP (MS-CHAP) box is checked, the PC accepts MS-CHAP version 1 and does not accept CHAP per RFC 1994.

Commands for Other Cisco IOS Releases

Note: In order to use these commands, remove the commands in bold from the configuration and paste in these commands in, as dictated by your Cisco IOS release.

Cisco IOS 11.3.3.T until 12.0.5.T

aaa authen login default tacacs+ local
aaa authen ppp default if-needed tacacs+ local
aaa authorization exec default tacacs+ if-authenticated
aaa authorization network default tacacs+ if-authenticated

Cisco IOS 12.0.5.T and Later

aaa authen login default group tacacs+ local
aaa authen ppp default if-needed group tacacs+ local
aaa authorization exec default group tacacs+ if-authenticated
aaa authorization network default group tacacs+ if-authenticated
