    Configuring the Route-Download Server to Download Routes

    When you configure the E Series router as a route-download server, you specify the RADIUS server that you want to download the routes to your router. You can also modify the route-download server’s default configuration parameters, such as when to start the download process each day, how often to downloaded routes, and how long to wait after a download error before retrying the process.

    • To configure a RADIUS route-download server to download IPv4 routes:
      1. Specify the IP address and the key of the RADIUS server that you want to download routes.
        host1(config)#radius route-download server 192.168.1.17 host1(config-radius)#key 35radsrv92
      2. (Optional) Specify the UDP port used for RADIUS route-download server requests.
        host1(config-radius)#udp-port 1812 host1(config-radius)#exit host1(config)#
      3. Enable the route-download feature and optionally modify default parameters as needed.
        host1(config)#aaa route-download 1200 retry-interval 25 password Configured synchronization 03:45:00
      4. (Optional) Verify your route-download configuration:
        host1(config)#exit
        host1#show aaa route-download

    • To configure a RADIUS route-download server to download IPv6 routes:
      1. Specify the IPv6 address and the key of the RADIUS server that you want to download routes.
        host1(config)#radius route-download server 192.168.1.17 host1(config-radius)#key 35radsrv92
      2. (Optional) Specify the UDP port used for RADIUS route-download server requests.
        host1(config-radius)#udp-port 1812 host1(config-radius)#exit host1(config)#exit
      3. Enable the route-download feature and optionally modify default parameters as needed.
        host1(config)#aaa route-download ipv6
      4. (Optional) Verify your route-download configuration:
        host1(config)#exit
        host1#show aaa route-download ipv6
        
        AAA Route Downloader:     configured in virtual router default

      Note: If optional parameters such as retry-interval, synchronization, tag, cost, and download interval are configured for either IPv4 or IPv6 route downloads, they are applied to both IPv4 and IPv6 route downloads. However, the username and password are configured separately for IPv4 and IPv6 routes.
