Configuring RADIUS Authentication (SRC CLI)


Use the following configuration statements to configure information about one or more RADIUS servers on the network at the [edit] hierarchy level:

To configure information about RADIUS servers for authentication:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that adds a RADIUS server.

  2. Specify a port number on which to contact the RADIUS server.

    By default, port number 1812 is used.

  3. Specify a password. Passwords can contain spaces. The secret used by the C Series Controller must match that used by the server.

  4. (Optional) Specify the amount of time that the C Series Controller waits to receive a response from a RADIUS server.

    By default, the C Series Controller waits 3 seconds. You can change the timeout to a value from 1 through 90 seconds.

  5. Specify the number of times that the C Series Controller attempts to contact a RADIUS authentication server.

    By default, the C Series Controller retry property is set to 3 times. You can change the retry value to a number from 1 through 10 times.

To configure a set of users that share a single account for authorization purposes, you create a template user.
