RADIUS Proxy port configuration
Allows the RADIUS proxy service to be disabled or the Authentication and Accounting ports to be changed. These ports are independent of each other. This enables FortiNAC to proxy Accounting traffic while processing Authentication requests locally when device models are configured for Local RADIUS Authentication Mode.
The first RADIUS Server added becomes the primary server by default. As more servers are added, you can modify which server is the primary.
The encryption method for user names and passwords passed between FortiNAC and the RADIUS server must be set to PAP. This affects the following accounts or user names and passwords created on the RADIUS server:
- The validation account created for communication with FortiNAC and entered in the RADIUS Server Profile configuration.
- Network users that access the network via the captive portal and are authenticated through RADIUS.
- Admin UI users authenticated through RADIUS.
- VPN Users authenticated through RADIUS.
You should be able to communicate with a RADIUS Server in order to add it to the list. For example, if a RADIUS Server is not currently connected to the network and FortiNAC cannot contact it, you will be asked if you want to add the server anyway.
