    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:

    system radius-server address {port port ; secret secret ; timeout timeout; retry retry ; }

    To configure information about RADIUS servers for authentication:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that adds a RADIUS server.
      [edit]user@host# edit system radius-server address
    2. Specify a port number on which to contact the RADIUS server.
      [edit system radius-server address ]user@host# set port port

      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.
      [edit system radius-server address ]user@host# set secret secret
    4. (Optional) Specify the amount of time that the C Series Controller waits to receive a response from a RADIUS server.
      [edit system radius-server address ]user@host# set timeout timeout

      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.
      [edit system radius-server address ]user@host# set retry retry

      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.
