When Adding New Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) Server the ACCT Field Set to 0

In EWS, when adding a new RADIUS server, the Accounting Port (ACCT) field gets set to 0. If a new RADIUS server is created in the CLI, the Accounting Port (ACCT) field is set to one greater than the Authorization Port (Auth) field.

Steps to repeat:

  1. Create a RADIUS server from lcli.
  2. Create a RADIUS server from Web Based Interface (WBI).

The results are displayed below:

IP address Auth Acct TimeOut Retransmit DeadTime source IP Priority

--------------- ---- ---- ------- ---------- -------- --------------- --------

6.1.2.3 1812 1813 Global Global Global 0.0.0.0 0 <-------LCLI

10.10.1.10 1812 0 Global Global Global Global 0 <--------EWS

radius-server host 19.1.1.1 auth-port 1812 timeout 3 retransmit 3 deadtime

0 key "" source 0.0.0.0



Change the ACCT Port Number

Change the ACCT port number after creating the server from LCLI or EWS.

NOTE: Where accounting is not supported, ignore this information.
