3. Set up Radius Service

  • Click on Add Service.
  • Set up the radius service details as usual (click here for a guide on adding a radius service).
  • Navigate to the Radius Attribute tab.
  • Click on Add Custom Attribute.
    • Add the following three Cisco-AVPair attribute values with the quotation marks:
      • Value (Your Loopback Interface): “ip:ip-unnumbered=LoopbackXXXX”
        • LoopbackXXXX is the Loopback interface associated with the address pool.
      • Value (Your Address Pool): “ip:addr-pool=YYYY”
        • YYYY is the address pool name from which an IP address should be allocated to the user.
      • Vallue (Your primary and secondary DNS servers): “ip:dns-servers=a.a.a.a b.b.b.b”
        • Replace a.a.a.a with the IP address of your Primary DNS server and b.b.b.b with your secondary DNS server.
  • After this the Radius Service can be assigned to a Data Package and then to a Radius User where the Custom Radius Attributes will be applied for IPC Authentication.
  • Bellow are screenshots of the setup. First screenshot is the Radius Attributes on the Radius Service and second screenshot is on the Radius User.
