3.13.7. DefaultRealm Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This optional parameter can be used to specify a default realm to use for requests that have a User-Name that does not include a realm. The realm can then be used to trigger a specific <Realm> or <Handler> clause. This is useful if you operate a number of NASs for different customer groups and where some or all of your customers log in without specifying a realm.
# Realmless logins to this NAS will be treated
# as if they are for realm open.com.au
<Client acc1.open.com.au>
      Secret ....
      DefaultRealm open.com.au
<Realm open.com.au>
Under some circumstances, some NASs send requests with no User-Name (usually for administrative reports). In that case, DefaultRealm will not add a realm to the User-Name, nor create a User-Name.
