AAA Radius Authentication for Calling Card Platform


I am using AS5350 and I am using it for calling card application using Clear Box as my RADIUS Server for AAA. My question now, how would I know if cisco is sending the dtmf for "enter card" on the RADIUS server ? Does the card number included on the VSA ? below are my configurations and the debug info. The problem here is that the card number that I entered doesn't able to match against the configuration on my Clear Box/SQL Database. I want to know what should I expect from CiscoAS5350 to send a vsa for enter_card_number ?

Re: AAA Radius Authentication for Calling Card Platform

VSAs are collected by the RADIUS server during the accounting process when AAA is configured with the Debit Card feature. Data items are collected for each call leg created on the gateway. A call leg is the internal representation of a connection on the gateway. Each call made through the gateway consists of two call legs: incoming and outgoing. The call leg information emitted by the gateways can be correlated by the connection ID, which is the same for all call legs of a connection.

Use the H.323 VSA method of accounting when configuring the AAA application.

There are two modes:

•Overloaded Session-ID

Use the gw-accounting h323 syslog command to configure this mode.


Use the gw-accounting h323 vsa command to configure this mode.
