Editing the proxy.ini File

 

The proxy.ini file specifies the order of realm selection methods, the realm selection rules, and other settings for all realms on the server. Settings for a realm are provided in its RealmName.pro or RealmName.dir file.

After you edit proxy.ini, you must apply your changes as follows:

  • If you have configured any proxy RADIUS realms, it is possible to load your new realm configuration dynamically, without stopping and restarting the server.

    • Issue the SIGHUP (1) signal to the SBR Carrier process:

    SBR Carrier re-reads proxy.ini, filter.ini, and all *.pro and *.dir files in the server directory, and resets its realm configuration accordingly.

  • If you have configured any directed realms and if you have added or changed:

    • Any directed accounting methods at all, you must stop and restart the server to load your new configuration.

    • Directed authentication methods in which external database (SQL or LDAP) authentication is used, you must stop and restart the server to load your new configuration.

    • Directed authentication methods in which local or pass-through (Local, UNIX, Domain, or Host) authentication is used, you can load your new realm configuration by using a SIGHUP (1) signal.

      Note

      Refer to the SBR Carrier Reference Guide for syntax information for the proxy.ini and proxyrl.ini files.

      Note

      If you edit radius.ini while configuring a realm, you must stop and restart the server before your new configuration is fully loaded.
