TACACS user authentication on WF-500

L0 Member

Hi Team,

The customer has a query about whether if is it possible to configure TACACS user authentication through WF-500. 
The customer has no panorama setup or anything he was able to successfully configure on Palo Alto NGFW but not on WF-500.


I request you to kindly provide some updates on this issue.

Awaiting your response.


Thanks & Regards

Thank you @RJ274  for posting question.


I was researching this topic in the past. As per documentation for all the releases, the WF-500 has the only external authentication option and it is RADIUS. Since customer does not have Panorama deployed, this is out of question as well. Also, since RADIUS and TACACS+ are totally different protocols, I do not believe there is any dirty solution to come up with protocol conversion/translation, so I do not believe this customer request is not possible to fulfill.


Kind Regards
