Setting Up RADIUS Configuration

Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) is a client/server protocol and software that enables remote access servers to communicate with a central server to authenticate dial-in users and authorize their access to the requested system or service. This chapter describes how to configure user authentication on a RADIUS server and in the Junos Scope software so that users with a RADIUS account can log in to the Junos Scope software.

The RADIUS system administrator configures one or more RADIUS servers to share user account information with the Junos Scope software. The Junos Scope software administrator, with superuser permissions, adds the RADIUS server host information in Junos Scope. The Junos Scope administrator then creates one or more template accounts in Junos Scope so that RADIUS users get the appropriate permissions after they log in.
