    Configuring Diameter Peers (SRC CLI)

    Use the following configuration statements to configure the Diameter peers:

    shared network diameter peer name { protocol [(tcp | sctp)...];address [address...];enforce-source-address;local-address local-address;connect-timeout connect-timeout;watchdog-timeout watchdog-timeout;state-machine-timeout state-machine-timeout;reconnect-timeout reconnect-timeout;port port;origin-host origin-host;incoming-queue-limit incoming-queue-limit;active-peer;}

    To configure the Diameter peer:

    1. From configuration mode, access the statements for the peer.
      user@host# edit shared network diameter peer name

      The peer name must be unique.

    2. Specify the protocol for the transport connection.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set protocol [(tcp | sctp)...]
    3. Specify the addresses of the remote peer. If SCTP is the transport protocol, you can specify multiple addresses. If TCP is the transport protocol, you can specify only a single address.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set address [address...]
    4. (Optional) Specify whether the remote peer must connect from one of the IP addresses listed by the address option.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set enforce-source-address
    5. (Optional) Specify the local address of the peer.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set local-address local-address
    6. (Optional) Specify the maximum amount of time allowed for the Diameter peer to respond to a connection request.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set connect-timeout connect-timeout
    7. (Optional) Specify the watchdog timeout used for the connection to the remote peer.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set watchdog-timeout watchdog-timeout
    8. (Optional) Specify the Diameter state machine timeout.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set state-machine-timeout state-machine-timeout
    9. (Optional) Specify the time interval between connection attempts when the peer is in the disconnected state.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set reconnect-timeout reconnect-timeout
    10. (Optional) Specify the port for the client.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set port port
    11. (Optional) Specify the identifier for the endpoint that the peer presents during connection establishment.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set origin-host origin-host
    12. (Optional) Specify the number of messages allowed on the incoming message queue for a peer.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set incoming-queue-limit incoming-queue-limit
    13. (Optional) Specify whether the peer connection is in active mode.
      [edit shared network diameter peer name] user@host# set active-peer

      Note: Active mode means that the SRC software actively tries to connect to the peer. Make sure the peer you are connecting to supports active peers. The MX Series router does not support active peers. The SRC software can still be configured, but the connection attempts will not work.
