Objective

A Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) server is an authentication server that provides authentication to users to connect to a device and use network service. When a user enters the username and password, the data is sent to the RADIUS server. Here, it is checked against the data stored on the server to ensure its authenticity.

The objective of this document is to explain how to add a RADIUS server for authentication and how to edit or delete a configured RADIUS server on the Cisco RV220W and RV120W.

Applicable Devices

• RV220W
• RV120W

Software Version

• v1.0.5.9 - RV120W
