    Configuring Anonymous Users on a Broadband Gateway APN

    Before you begin configuring anonymous user parameters on a MobileNext Broadband Gateway access point name (APN), you should have done the following:

    • Configured the chassis of the broadband gateway
    • Configured the interfaces of the broadband gateway
    • Configured the general APN parameters for the specific APN

    To verify anonymous users on the broadband gateway, you configure a default username and password for authentication. Without this username and password, the broadband gateway does not accept anonymous users. You also specify a method to use for verification to prevent fraud using the device’s International Mobile Station Identity (IMSI), Mobile Subscriber Integrated Services Digital Network (MSISDN) number, or APN name.

    To configure anonymous user parameters on a broadband gateway APN:

    1. Configure the username and verification method for anonymous users on apn-1.
      [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw MBG1 apn-services apns apn-1 anonymous-user]user@host# set user-nameuse-apnname user-name

      Note: Alternatively, you can configure set use-msidn, set use-apnname, or set use-imsi as an anonymous username for authentication. There is no default name.

    2. Configure the password for anonymous users on apn-1:
      [edit unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw MBG1 apn-services apns apn-1 anonymous-user]user@host# set password 2*20Is550

      Note: The password can be up to 32 characters long.
