Controlling WebAgent access when using TACACS+ authentication

Configuring the switch for TACACS+ authentication does not affect WebAgent access. To prevent unauthorized access through the WebAgent, do one or more of the following:

  • Configure local authentication (a manager user name and password and, optionally, an operator user name and password) on the switch.

  • Configure the switch Authorized IP manager feature to allow WebAgent access only from authorized management stations. (The Authorized IP manager feature does not interfere with TACACS+ operation.)

  • Disable WebAgent access to the switch by going to the System Information screen in the Menu interface and configuring the Web Agent Enabled parameter to No.
