Remote RADIUS Servers

A RADIUS server is a remote host running RADIUS server and handling authentication and accounting requests. ClearBox Server may be configured to forward requests to these servers. When proxy-forwarding is enabled, ClearBox becomes a RADIUS client. It works as a proxy and forwards requests from clients to remote servers, then replies to a client with the response received from the remote target server.

A remote server has its IP address and a secret shared with ClearBox server. This secret serves as a special password to protect communications between ClearBox and the remote server. Besides, you should set authentication and/or accounting ports, and retransmission policy parameters. It's invoked when ClearBox doesn't receive a response from a target server and has to re-send it.

Note. You SHOULD define the same shared secret both in ClearBox configuration and on a remote RADIUS server.

There's no need to configure remote servers if you use local authentication or accounting, and no proxy-forwarding is enabled.

See how to configure a remote server.

How to create a new remote RADIUS server:

1. Right-click the 'Remote RADIUS Servers' node in the left tree and select 'Add New Server':

2. Type the new server name instead of <new id> text:

3. Configure its settings and click 'Apply changes'.
