Originator of authentication request.


The pending requests are requests and responses that are not yet sent back to the respective clients. The pending requests can be in one of the following states:

  • Processing: This request is being processed by the device. The authentication process has started but is not complete.

  • Waiting on Auth Server: The request is sent to an external authentication server, and the device is waiting for the response.

  • Processed: This request has completed authentication (success or failure). The results are not yet forwarded back to the client.

  • Request cancelled by Admin: This request was cancelled by the Admin. The reply with cancel code is not yet sent back to the client.


The profile determines how the user is authenticated.

Local clients defined with the statement access profile client are authenticated with the password authentication. Clients configured external to the device, on a RADIUS or LDAP server are authenticated with RADIUS or LDAP authentication.
