    Configuring the SAE for SRC ACP (C-Web Interface)

    To configure the SAE to recognize SRC ACP by adding information about SRC ACP to the SAE properties:

    1. Configuring SRC ACP as an External Plug-In

    2. Configuring Event Publishers for SRC ACP

    3. Configuring the SAE to Monitor Interfaces for Congestion Points

    Configuring SRC ACP as an External Plug-In

    To configure SRC ACP as an external plug-in for the SAE:

    1. Click Configure>Shared>SAE, and then expand the SAE group for which you want to configure a plug-in.

      The Group pane appears.

    2. From the side pane, expand Configuration>Plug Ins.

      The Plug Ins pane appears.

    3. In the Create new list, select Name.

    4. Type a name for the new plug-in in the dialog box, and click OK.

      The plug-in appears in the side pane and in the Plug In pane.

    5. From the side pane, expand the new plug-in, and then click External.

      The External pane appears.

    6. Click Create, enter information as described in the Help text in the main pane, and click Apply.

    Configuring Event Publishers for SRC ACP

    Configure the SAE to publish the following types of events to SRC ACP:

    • (Edge and dual mode only) Global subscriber tracking

    • Global service authorization

    • Global service tracking

    Configuring the SAE to Monitor Interfaces for Congestion Points

    Note: Configure this feature only if SRC ACP is in backbone or dual mode.

    The SAE uses a hosted internal plug-in to monitor the state of interfaces on a VR for backbone congestion points. If a subscriber tries to activate a service on an interface that is unavailable, the SAE denies the request. The plug-in also monitors the directory for new backbone congestion points.

    When this plug-in initializes, it reads all the backbone services from the directory and generates a list of the DNs (network interfaces) of the backbone congestion points. The SAE sends interface tracking events, which contain the names of the interfaces, VRs, and routers to this plug-in. For this feature to work correctly, the interface, VR, and router must be configured (see Configuring Network Interfaces in the Directory).

    To configure the ACP interface listener as an internal plug-in for the SAE:

    1. Click Configure>Shared>SAE, and then expand the SAE group for which you want to configure RADIUS plug-ins.

      The Group pane appears.

    2. From the side pane, expand Configuration>Plug-Ins.

    3. Expand the plug-in that you created for file accounting, and then click ACP Interface Listener.

      The ACP Interface Listener pane appears.

    4. Click Create, enter information as described in the Help text in the main pane, and click Apply.
