Description (partial)


This enhancement request is opened to add the ability for WAAS devices to have a tacacs key that contains a # character.
For now such keys are rejected with the following message:

Illegal character '#' in TACACS+ key string configuration.


Use a "tacacs key <key>" command where <key> contains a # character.
