7.1.12. Prefix Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This check item checks for the presence of a certain prefix in the user name. If it is not present the check item will fail. If it is present, it will be removed from the user name and accepted. This is most useful in DEFAULT items to handle different variations of the same users name, but with different reply attributes.
In this example, there might be a user mikem in the System authentication method. These user entries will allow Pmikem to log in as a PPP user, and Smikem to login as a Slip user:
DEFAULT     Prefix = P, Auth-Type = System
            Service-Type = Framed-User,
            Framed-Protocol = PPP,
            Framed-IP-Address =,
            Framed-MTU = 1500
DEFAULT     Prefix = S, Auth-Type = System
            Service-Type = Framed-User,
            Framed-Protocol = SLIP,
            Framed-IP-Address =,
            Framed-Compression = None
Prefix should appear before any Auth-Type check items.
