Configuring Upstream Network Elements and Accounting and Authentication Clients (SRC CLI)

Accounting and authentication clients are NAS devices that logically reside in upstream network elements. Accounting clients send RADIUS accounting requests to the SIC accounting listener. Authentication clients send RADIUS authentication requests to the SIC authentication listener. You must configure at least one accounting client and one authentication client. Each client must have a unique name and address.

Use the following statements to configure accounting clients:

shared sic group identifier radius network-element id upstream radius-client id {address address;accounting-secret accounting-secret;authentication-secret authentication-secret;}

To configure RADIUS accounting and authentication clients:

  1. From configuration mode, access the statement that configures an upstream network element and RADIUS client. For example, to configure an upstream RADIUS network element called ne1 and RADIUS client called rc1 for the SIC group group1:
    [edit]user@host# edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 upstream radius-client rc1
  2. (Optional) Specify the IP address of the RADIUS client.
    [edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 upstream radius-client rc1]user@host# set address address
  3. (Optional) Specify the shared secret used by the accounting client.
    [edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 upstream radius-client rc1]user@host# set accounting-secret authentication-secret
  4. Specify the shared secret used by the authentication client.
    [edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 upstream accounting-client]]user@host# set accounting-secret accounting-secret
