Authentication Servers

RADIUS authentication servers configured for providing authentication service.

To provide the authentication service, the switch accesses the servers in the listed order and in a round-robin fashion until a valid response is received from one of the servers or until all the configured retry limits are reached.

Accounting Servers

RADIUS accounting servers configured for providing accounting service.

RADIUS accounting servers store statistical data about users logging in to or out from a LAN through a switch. The statistical data is used for general network monitoring, analyzing and tracking usage patterns, or billing a user based upon the amount of time or type of services accessed.

The RADIUS accounting server you specify can be the same server used for RADIUS authentication, or it can be a separate RADIUS server. You can specify more than one RADIUS accounting server. If the primary server (the first one configured) is unavailable, the switch tries to access each RADIUS server in the list in the order in which they are configured.

Revert Interval

The number of seconds that the switch waits after a RADIUS server has become unreachable before rechecking the connection. If the server is still unreachable, the server next in the priority list is used.
