    1. How many access typies support if i use tacacs?
    (i mean console, web and telnet etc)
    2. When access a switch/router from console it does not
    prompt user name, just en then pasword. How does it
    work if using tacacs?

    line password and TACACS/RADIUS are mutual exclusive on the same line.
    So all just like you configure it.

    They are NOT mutually exclusive!!! You can configure authentication to use a
    primary, seconday and teriary authentication methods. In the below example,
    TACACS is used if a server is available, then the line password IF one is
    configured, and finally the enable password. If you TACACS is unavailable,
    AND you don't have a line password configured AND you don't have an enable
    password configured, you won't be able to login.

    aaa new-model
    aaa authentication login default group tacacs+ line enable

    Then answers to the original questions are:
    1) all of them
    2) it prompts you for a username first and then a password
