Usage guidelines

HWTACACS is based on TCP. When the server response timeout timer or the TCP timeout timer times out, the device is disconnected from the HWTACACS server.

The client timeout period of the associated access module cannot be shorter than the total response timeout timer of all HWTACACS servers in the scheme. Any violation will result in user logoffs before the authentication, authorization, or accounting process is complete.


# In HWTACACS scheme hwt1, set the HWTACACS server response timeout timer to 30 seconds.
