RADIUS client resources represent RADIUS clients. These resources are commonly for firewalls (primarily for VPNs).
RADIUS client resources must be linked to the AuthPoint Gateway and you must choose a shared secret key so that the RADIUS server (AuthPoint Gateway) and the RADIUS client can communicate.
Add a RADIUS Client Resource
- In the AuthPoint management UI, select Resources.
The Resources page in the AuthPoint management UI opens.
- From the Choose a resource type drop-down list, select RADIUS Client. Click Add.
- In the Name text box, type a descriptive name for the resource.
- In the RADIUS client trusted IP or FQDN text box, type the IP address of your RADIUS client.
- In the Shared Secret text box, type a password that the RADIUS server (AuthPoint Gateway) and the RADIUS client will use to communicate.
- Click Save.
Add a RADIUS Client Resource to a Gateway Configuration
Once your have added a RADIUS client resource, you must add it to the configuration for your AuthPoint Gateway. This is necessary for the RADIUS client to communicate with the RADIUS server (Gateway) and with AuthPoint.
If you have not already installed the AuthPoint Gateway, see About Gateways.
- From the navigation menu, select Gateway.
- Click the Name of your Gateway.
- In the RADIUS section, in the Port text box, type the port number for the RADIUS client to use to communicate with the Gateway (RADIUS server). The default Gateway ports are 1812 and 1645.
If you already have a RADIUS server installed that uses port 1812 or 1645, you must use a different port to communicate with the Gateway.
- From the Select a RADIUS client resource list, select your RADIUS client resource(s).
- Click Save.
Now you have successfully added a RADIUS client resource and connected it with your Gateway. The last step is to configure your RADIUS client for authentication. Refer to the AuthPoint Integration Guides for the steps to configure specific RADIUS client resources.
Once you have configured the external settings for the RADIUS client, you must assign an access policy for the RADIUS client resource to an AuthPoint user group. Access policies are assigned to user groups in order to specify which resources require authentication and which authentication method to use for the users that are in that group. See Access Policies for more information.
