Stage One of Realm Configuration
Perform the following steps to configure a realm of any type for SBR Carrier. Some steps require that you edit parameters in SBR Carrier configuration files.
Determine whether you want to provide proxy RADIUS or directed realms.
Does the customer have their own RADIUS servers, to which they want to direct requests? If so, you need to set up a proxy RADIUS realm for the customer.
Does the customer need you to host its RADIUS server? If so, you need to set up a directed authentication or accounting realm for the customer.
If you have not done so already, define delimiter conventions for realm name parsing.
The delimiter conventions that you define in proxy.ini are used for all realms defined in SBR Carrier. Be sure to inform the customer of the delimiter and prefix/suffix conventions you are using for realms.proxy.ini[Configuration]RealmSuffix=RealmPrefix=
Agree upon a realm name (or DNIS grouping) with the customer.
Keep the realm name simple if the realm is not defined by DNIS, because end users must enter it in combination with their existing usernames (for example, User@RealmName). The realm name configured in SBR Carrier does not need to match any names in use at the customer site. The realm name cannot match an existing target name, realm name, or tunnel name in your SBR Carrier configuration.
If the realm is defined as a DNIS grouping, the user is matched to a realm based on the Called-Station-Id.
