    Configuring a Local Subscriber for a Dynamic Upper-Interface Encapsulation Type Configured over a Dynamic ATM 1483 Subinterface

    You can use the atm atm1483 subscriber command to configure a local subscriber for a dynamic upper-interface encapsulation type configured over a dynamic ATM 1483 subinterface created with a base profile. A subscriber supports authentication and configuration from the RADIUS server.

    When you configure a subscriber, you must specify the following:

    • upperInterfaceType—Type of dynamic interface, bridgedEthernet or ip
    • userNameUsage—How the dynamic interface uses the username for authentication purposes
      • user—Use the name as specified.
      • user-prefix—Use the name as a prefix to the interface physical location. The router automatically postpends the physical location of the user to the username string. The username format is userName.slot.port.vpi.vci. The resulting username string is then used to authenticate the subscriber with the RADIUS server.
    • userName—RADIUS username
    • domainName—Domain name

    You can optionally supply password information:

    • passwordUsage—How the dynamic interface uses the password for authentication purposes
      • password—Use the password as specified.
      • password-prefix—Use the password as a prefix to the interface physical location. The router automatically postpends the physical location of the user to the password string. The password format is password.slot.port.vpi.vci. The resulting password string is then used to authenticate the subscriber with the RADIUS server.
    • password—RADIUS password

    If your router is running stateful SRP switchover (high availability), the use of the atm atm1483 subscriber command to configure RADIUS authentication for subscribers on dynamic bridged Ethernet interfaces might suspend stateful SRP switchover on the router or prevent stateful SRP switchover from becoming active. For more information about using the subscriber management application to bypass this limitation, see Subscriber Authentication on Dynamic Bridged Ethernet over Dynamic ATM Interfaces.

    To configure a local subscriber for a dynamic upper-interface encapsulation type configured over a dynamic ATM 1483 subinterface with a base profile::

    • Issue the atm atm1483 subscriber command in Profile Configuration mode.
    host1(config-profile)#atm atm1483 subscriber ip user-prefix boston01
    domain myisp password-prefix abc123

    Use the no version to remove the subscriber.
