Configuring Downstream Network Elements and Accounting and Authentication Targets (SRC CLI)

 

Accounting and authentication targets (RADIUS AAA server) receive requests forwarded by the SIC. These targets reside in downstream network elements. You must configure at least one accounting target and one authentication target. Each target must have a unique name and address.

Configuring SIC Accounting Targets (SRC CLI)

Use the following statements to configure accounting targets:

To configure an accounting target:

  1. From configuration mode, access the statement that configures the accounting target. This sample procedure uses group1 for the group identifier, ne1 for the network element identifier, and target1 as the accounting target name.

  2. Specify the IP address of the RADIUS accounting target contained in the network element.

  3. Specify the priority of the target. Targets with lower priority values are selected before other targets in a failover policy.

  4. Specify the shared secret used by the RADIUS accounting target.

  5. (Optional) Specify the name of the local transport used to send requests to the accounting target.

  6. (Optional) Specify the UDP port number on which the RADIUS accounting target listens for requests.

Configuring SIC Authentication Targets (SRC CLI)

Use the following statements to configure authentication targets:

To configure an authentication target:

  1. From configuration mode, access the statement that configures the authentication target. This sample procedure uses group1 for the group identifier, ne1 for the network element identifier, and target1 as the authentication target name.

  2. Specify the IP address of the RADIUS authentication target contained in the network element.

  3. Specify the priority of the target. Targets with lower priority values are selected before other targets in a failover policy.

  4. Specify the shared secret used by the RADIUS authentication target.

  5. (Optional) Specify the name of the local transport used to send outbound requests to the authentication target.

  6. (Optional) Specify the UDP port number on which the RADIUS authentication target listens for requests.
