    Configuring the RADIUS for Subscriber Access Management, L2TP, or PPP (NSM Procedure)

    You can configure RADIUS for subscriber access management, layer 2 tunneling protocol (L2TP), or point-to-point protocol (PPP). The servers are tried in order and in a round-robin fashion until a valid response is received from one of the servers or until all the configured retry limits are reached.

    To configure the RADIUS server in NSM:

    1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
    2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device to select it.
    3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, expand Access.
    4. Select Radius Server.
    5. Add or modify settings as specified in Table 1.
    6. Click one:
      • OK—Saves the changes.
      • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
