Correct, try using something different to generate the tac passwords.  My
silly cgi works:


You can also use mkpasswd, but it has to be a newer version.

Hi John,

This issue already solve with change the enable password with other
password. In my case this happen if i use login password and enable
password with same character from the first and have only 1 different
character in the end of password. Maybe des encryption do not check until
the last character.

Anyway thanks so much for your help.
