3.38.36. CacheOnNoReply Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This flag controls when the password cache created by the CachePasswords parameter is consulted.
If CacheOnNoReply is set (the default), then the Access-Request will always be proxied to the remote RADIUS server, and password cache will only be consulted if there is no reply from of any of the remote RADIUS servers. If no reply is received from any of the remote RADIUS servers, and If there is a cached reply that matches the password and has not exceeded the CachePasswordExpiry time limit, then the request will be accepted.
If CacheOnNoReply is not set, then the password cache will consulted before proxying. If there is a cached reply that matches the password and has not exceeded the CachePasswordExpiry time limit, then the request will be accepted immediately without being proxied to any remote RADIUS server.
