Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 21.3R1.


Configure a CHAP password to override the existing password for authenticating any subscriber associated with the domain map. The override CHAP password replaces the CHAP challenge response that the PPP client sends to the server for authentication.

The CHAP challenge response is normally sent in the RADIUS Access-Request message as the CHAP-Password attribute (attribute 3). When you configure an override CHAP password, it is sent in the Access-Request as the User-Password attribute (attribute 2), and the CHAP-Password attribute is not included in the message.
