sessionTable.ini File

The sessionTable.ini file allows you to take any attribute in a request and store it in the CST.

[Settings] Section

In the [Settings] section of the sessionTable.ini file, the parameter in Table 89 ensures unique attributes in the session table.

Table 89: sessionTable.ini [Settings] Syntax

Parameter

Function

GenerateUniqueId

  • If this is set to default, the CST's UniqueSessionId is created in the regular manner.
  • If this is set to ipaddr, and if a Framed-IP-Address attribute was received, the CST's UniqueSessionId is set to 4 bytes of IPv4 address, and 12 bytes of 0. This ensures that the Framed-IP-Address attribute is unique in the session table.
  • If this is set to ipaddr-plus-nas, and if a Framed-IP-Address attribute was received, the CST's UniqueSessionId is set to 4 bytes of IPv4 address, and up to 12 bytes of the NAD Name, with 0s following the NAD Name if less than 12 bytes. This ensures that the Framed-IP-Address attribute is unique in the session table for each NAD.
  • If this is set to outernai-plus-mac, the CST’s UniqueSessionId is a combination of Outer-NAI and MAC address.
  • If set to acct-session-id-plus-nas, the UniqueSessionId is created always based on NAD name and Acct-Session-Id.

    Note: For accounting records to be matched with authentications with this option, the Access-Request must contain an Acct-Session-Id.

Default value is default.

Note: The ipaddr and ipaddr-plus-nas settings are meant to be used only by accounting servers. The outernai-plus-mac setting is used for WiMAX.

UpdateAllOnStart

This parameter is primarily used in the case of GenerateUniqueId with “ipaddr” or similar settings to force overwriting of all session data when a new start comes in for the same unique ID.

Default value is “false.”

See Steel-Belted Radius Carrier Installation Guide for information about configuring the sessionTable.ini file.
