ACS: trouble with custom radius port

Unanswered Question
Nov 6th, 2008


Using ACS 4.2, I want to configure a custom radius port.

I open the web interface. I click Network Configuration. I click the AAA server. (my local system)

The IP Address is listed, AAA Server Type=RADIUS, Traffic = inbound/outbound.

I then try to set my own personal radius port. (I have tried several values, like 44444, etc.)

I click submit and apply.

On this system, I check 'netstat -a'. I notice that nothing is listening on my custom port - 44444.

From a client, I attempt a radius lookup using port 44444. Wireshark shows the ACS system is responding with port unreachable. If I attempt a radius lookup using port 1812, it works just fine.

Question: Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?


I have this problem too.
