Configuring Access Components for the Layer 2 Wholesale Network Solution

 

When configuring a wholesale network, you must configure several components globally. This configuration provides access to RADIUS servers (if used) that you want the wholesaler and any configured retailers to use globally. The access configuration includes the following general steps:

Configuring RADIUS Server Access

You can globally define any RADIUS servers in your network that either the wholesale access profile or retailer access profile can use. After you define the global RADIUS servers, you can specify specific RADIUS servers within individual access profiles.

To define RADIUS servers for profile access:

  1. Access the [edit access radius-server] hierarchy level.
  2. Specify the address and secret for any RADIUS servers in the network.

Configuring a Layer 2 Wholesaler Access Profile

You must define the network and interface over which you want subscribers to initially access the network with a wholesale access profile. When a subscriber attempts to access the network, the access profile provides initial access information including authentication and accounting values that the router uses for the accessing subscriber.

To define a wholesale access profile:

  1. Create the wholesale access profile.
  2. Specify the authentication methods for the profile and the order in which they are used.
  3. Specify that you want to configure RADIUS support.
  4. Specify the IP address of the RADIUS server used for authentication.
  5. Specify the IP address of the RADIUS server used for accounting.
  6. Configure any desired options for the RADIUS server.

    See Configuring Access Profile Options for Interactions with RADIUS Servers.

  7. Configure subscriber accounting (RADIUS accounting).
