Controlling Web UI access when using TACACS+ authentication

Configuring the switch for TACACS+ authentication does not affect Web UI access. To prevent unauthorized access through the Web UI, 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 Web UI access only from authorized management stations. The Authorized IP manager feature does not interfere with TACACS+ operation.

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