Configuring Router or Switch Interaction with RADIUS Servers
You specify the RADIUS servers that the router or switch
can use and you configure how the router or switch interacts with
the servers. You can configure the router or switch to use multiple
RADIUS servers on the network.
To specify a RADIUS server and how the router
or switch interacts with the server:
Configure the IP address of the RADIUS server
and specify that you want to configure the router or switch interaction
with the server.
(Optional) Configure the number of times
that the router or switch attempts to contact a RADIUS accounting
server. You can configure the router or switch to retry from 1 through
16 times. The default setting is 3 retry attempts.
Configure the source address for the
RADIUS server. Each RADIUS request sent to a RADIUS server uses the
specified source address. The source address is a valid IPv4 address
configured on one of the router or switch interfaces.
Configure the length of time that the
local router or switch waits to receive a response from a RADIUS server.
By default, the router or switch waits 3 seconds. You can configure
the timeout to be from 1 through 90 seconds.
