not able to see TACACS packet on the packet capture on the controller

Hi Everyone,

 

I am having issues in authenticating management client. I have decided to run the packet capture on the controller to verify the TACACS+ packet exchange between the controller and the TACACS server. 

 

I have enabled the packet capture on the controller using the command "packet-capture tcp all"

 

Still i am not able to see the TACACS packets on the packet capture in the logs.tar file. However i can see other TCP packets. 

 

I do see somewhere that Radius packets and LDAP packets were captured using the above command but it is mentioned anything about TACACS packet. 

 

Can you help me out on this why i am not able to see the TACACS packet?

 

Note: TACACS+ works on TCP protocol.

Re: not able to see TACACS packet on the packet capture on the controller

Radius uses UDP so you should not be seeing it.  Tacacs uses TCP 49 and if you use the controller packet capture for that(http://community.arubanetworks.com/aruba/attachments/aruba/115/160/1/Packet+Capturing+Options+with+Aruba+Wireless+Networks.pdf), you should be able to find the packet capture in the filter.pcap in the logs.tar
