Specifying switch timeout


timeout <1-255>


Specifies how long the switch waits for a TACACS+ server to respond to an authentication request. If the switch does not detect a response within the timeout period, it initiates a new request to the next TACACS+ server in the list. If all TACACS+ servers in the list fail to respond within the timeout period, the switch uses either local authentication (if configured) or denies access (if none configured for local authentication).

Default: 5 seconds
