For More Information




For More Information
                You will need the documentation for your access control server (ACS) and your network
                access server (NAS). You might also want to consult Cisco Systems’ Internetworking
                Terms and Acronyms publication.
                You should also read any Readme.txt file and any release notes for additional important
                information. After you install CiscoSecure GRS, if there is a Readme.txt file, it will be
                located in the following directory:
                   /pathname/doc

                pathname is the directory you select during the installation process.
                Your CiscoSecure GRS also includes a quick reference card to help you quickly install and
                configure it.
                Cisco documentation and additional literature are available in a CD-ROM package, which
                ships with your product. The Documentation CD-ROM, a member of the Cisco Connection
                Family, is updated monthly. Therefore, it might be more up to date than printed
                documentation. To order additional copies of the Documentation CD-ROM, contact your
                local sales representative or call customer service. The CD-ROM package is available as a
                single package or as an annual subscription. You can also access Cisco documentation on
                the World Wide Web at http://www.cisco.com, http://www-china.cisco.com, or http://
                www-europe.cisco.com.
                If you are reading Cisco product documentation on the World Wide Web, you can submit
                comments electronically. Click Feedback on the title bar, and then select Documentation.
