Integrating RADIUS & Leveraging  Authentication

You can make DeviceExpert work with RADIUS server in your environment. You can also leverage the RADIUS authentication for user access bypassing the local authentication provided by DeviceExpert. This section explains the configurations involved in integrating RADIUS server with DeviceExpert.

Step 1 - Providing Basic Details about RADIUS Server

To configure RADIUS server in DeviceExpert, provide the following basic details about RADIUS server and credentials to establish connection:


  1. Go to "Admin" >> "User" tab and click "RADIUS"

  2. In the UI that opens, click the button "Configure" on step 1

  3. In the UI that opens, provide the following details:

  4. Server Name/IP Address  - enter the host name or IP address of the host where RADIUS server is running

  5. Server Authentication Port - enter the port used for RADIUS server authentication. By default, RADIUS has been assigned the UDP port 1812 for RADIUS Authentication

  6. Server Protocol - select the protocol that is used to authenticate users. Choose from four protocols - Password Authentication Protocol (PAP), Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP), Microsoft Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (MSCHAP), Version 2 of Microsoft Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (MSCHAP2)

  7. Server Secret - enter the RADIUS secret used by the server for authentication

  8. Authentication Retries - select the number of times you wish to retry authentication in the event of an authentication failure

  9. Click "Save"


Step 2 - Enable RADIUS Authentication


After configuring the RADIUS server, the next step is to leverage the RADIUS server's authentication mechanism. To enable RADIUS authentication, click the button "Enable" in step 2. Once you do this, users would be able to login with their RADIUS credentials.
