VPN3000`s Radius Accounting

Dear all,

Does anyone know if the following scenario is possible on VPN3000?

1. External authentication to ACE/Server (native protocol, port 5500)

2. External accounting to a RADIUS server.

The ACE/Server and Radius are on two separate servers. Does VPN3000 still sends an accounting record if the authentication done on an ACE/Server ?

Appreciate for any help

Best Regards,

Cisco Employee

Re: VPN3000`s Radius Accounting

The VPN 3000 would authenticate natively to both ACE server (udp/5500) and

radius server. You would only get radius accounting records if the the authentication is done thru radius. If you want accounting records with the ACE server, you could setup the authentication on the VPN 3000 to be radius and configure the radius server as an ACE comms clients. The user or password database of the Radius server could then be pointed to the ACE server (as an external database). It would not then matter if your Radius and ACE server are on the same servers or not.
