Figure 6-7. Example of Configuring for a RADIUS Server with a Non-Default Accounting UDP Port Number
For example, suppose you want to the switch to use the RADIUS server
described below for both authentication and accounting purposes.
IP address: 10.33.18.151
A non-default UDP port number of 1750 for accounting.
For this example, assume that all other RADIUS authentication parameters
for accessing this server are acceptable at their default settings, and that
RADIUS is already configured as an authentication method for one or more
types of access to the switch (Telnet, Console, etc.).
The radius-server command as shown in figure 6-7, above, configures the
switch to use a RADIUS server at IP address 10.33.18.151, with a (non-default)
UDP accounting port of 1750, and a server-specific key of "source0151".
2. Configure Accounting Types and the Controls for
Sending Reports to the RADIUS Server
Select the Accounting Type(s):
Exec: Use exec if you want to collect accounting information on login
sessions on the switch via the console, Telnet, or SSH. (See also
"Accounting Services" on page 6-4.)
System: Use system if you want to collect accounting data when:
A system boot or reload occurs
System accounting is turned on or off
RADIUS Authentication and Accounting
Configuring RADIUS Accounting
Because the radius-server command
includes an acct-port element with a non-
default 1750, the switch assigns this value to
the accounting port UDP port numbers.
Because auth-port was not included in the
command, the authentication UDP port is set
to the default 1812.
