Configuring a DHCP Wholesaler Access Profile

You must define the network and interface over which you want subscribers to initially access the network with a wholesale access profile. When a subscriber attempts to access the network, the access profile provides initial access information including authentication and accounting values that the router uses for the accessing subscriber.

To define a wholesale access profile:

  1. Create the wholesale access profile.
    [edit]user@host# edit access profile Wholesale1
  2. Specify the authentication methods for the profile and the order in which they are used.
    [edit access profile Wholesaler1]user@host# set authentication-order radius password
  3. Specify that you want to configure RADIUS support.
    [edit access profile Wholesaler1]user@host# edit radius
  4. Specify the IP address of the RADIUS server used for authentication.
    [edit access profile Wholesaler1 radius] user@host# set authentication-server 192.168.10.1
  5. Specify the IP address of the RADIUS server used for accounting.
    [edit access profile Wholesaler1 radius] user@host# set accounting-server 192.168.10.1
  6. Configure any desired options for the RADIUS server.

    See Configuring RADIUS Server Options for Subscriber Access.

  7. Configure subscriber accounting (RADIUS accounting).

    See Configuring How Accounting Statistics Are Collected for Subscriber Access.
