Radius Authentication

Hi

I wonder if anyone can help

I have an ASA5505 setup to provide an encrypted tunnel across out internal lan. The outside address is on our internal lan. When I try to connect to it using radius authentication it fails. I can ping the radius server from the ASA using the ping tool in the ASDM.

I am sure it is some sort of access rule but cannot figure it out

ASA ( outside interface 10.25.200.30 connects to switch 10.25.200.1 radius server is 10.40.6.75

as I said I canb ping but when I do the radius test it just times out.

I have run debug and get the following. ( ip addresses are not the actual but have been changed to allow comparison)

ASA5505-GrimCentralLib-01# debug aaa authentication

debug aaa authentication enabled at level 1

ASA5505-GrimCentralLib-01# debug radius all

ASA5505-GrimCentralLib-01# term mon

Radius Authentication

are you using the correct interface for radius:

aaa-server RAD protocol radius

aaa-server RAD (outside) host 10.40.6.75 Cisco1234

route outside 10.40.6.75 255.255.255.255 next_hop_ip...

On the server, you need to configure the outside IP address of the ASA with the key...

Yes I have that all setup and I can ping the radius server from the ASA so routing is working.

The radius logs do not show any failed attempts at authentication and I have setup the device as a client with the correct shared key.

Have you tried pinging radius server w/ outside as sourced interface

ping outside 10.40.6.75

Is that working? Do we have any other devices that might be blocking radius communication between ASA and radius server?

when I log onto the ASA using a local username and password and run the asdm. If I use the ping option in tools I can ping the radius server with no problem.

Re: Radius Authentication

can you try from CLI in this format please

ping outside 10.40.6.75

do attach the following outputs:

sh run aaa-server

show run tunnel-group

Re: Radius Authentication

have done that it pings successfully

Re: Radius Authentication

thanks for performing that. now, I am thinking if traffic even reaching there at radius server for radius authentication port UDP 1645 or 1812. What kind of radius server are you using? can we run the packet capture on the radius server or switch interface where we have radius server connected.

Re: Radius Authentication

it is Juniper ( Funk) Steel Belted Radius

I will try to setup a packet capture but might take some time.

Thanks for your help so far anyway

Cisco Employee

Re: Radius Authentication

yeah that would be a right step if you are up for troubleshooting it further. You can also try and reload the radius server to eliminate any problem with the radius server or services.

What does the RADIUS server say? Does it recieve the request? If the client is not in the RADIUS server's list or if the shared key is wrong, it will not reply.

Re: Radius Authentication

Is there another firewall between the RADIUS server and the ASA? If so, is it configured to allow the RADIUS traffic through? I know it allows pings, but does it allow RADIUS?

Also, I see the RADIUS packets are being sent to port 1645. Is the RADIUS server configured to use that port as well, or does it only use the new RFC port of 1812. I assume that it does, but check anyway.

If you look at the logs on the ASA and filter for 10.40.6.75 does it tell you anything?
