Devices and Software Tables for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance
Revised: March 18, 2004
Because the number of devices that Cisco Secure ACS Appliance version 3.2 interoperates with runs into the hundreds, this device list differs significantly from those of other Cisco products with which you may be familiar. This document lists supported devices and software, that is, those that we have tested against. However, this document also lists devices and software programs that are, to the best of our knowledge, interoperable. Of the hundreds of devices and software programs that Cisco Secure ACS Appliance version 3.2 interoperates with, Cisco officially supports only those that have been tested.
For details regarding other limitations and known problems see Release Notes for CiscoSecure Access Control Server Appliance Version 3.2. On Cisco.com, you can find the latest version all documentation by selecting Products & Services > Security and VPN Software > Cisco Secure Access Control Server Appliance > Technical Documentation.
