    Configuring RADIUS Relay Server Support

    To configure the RADIUS relay server feature, you enable support for the feature on the E Series router and identify the key (secret) used for the connection between the WAP and the RADIUS relay server. The following example configures a RADIUS relay authentication server. Use similar steps to configure a RADIUS relay accounting server.

    Note: The E Series router supports one instance of the RADIUS relay server per virtual router. The instance can provide authentication, authorization, and accounting support.

    1. Enable RADIUS relay server support on the E Series router, and enter RADIUS Relay Configuration mode.
      host1(config)#radius relay authentication serverhost1(config-radius-relay)#
    2. Specify the IP address and mask of the network that will use the relay authentication server, and the secret used during exchanges between the relay authentication server and clients (the WAPs).
      host1(config-radius-relay)#key mysecret
    3. Specify the router’s User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port on which the RADIUS relay server listens.
      host1(config-radius-relay)#udp-port 1812
    4. (Optional) Verify the configuration.
      host1(config-radius-relay)#exit host1(config)#exit host1#show radius relay servers
