7.1.30. RecvFromName Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

Specifies the DNS name of the RADIUS, Radsec, or TACACS+ client the request was received from. IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are supported. You can use an exact, alternation, or regular expression match.
# Exact match
RecvFromName=radserver.open.com.au
# Regular expression:
RecvFromName=/.*\.open\.com\.au/
Tip
This can be useful in Handler clauses to provide special handling of requests received from a specific client:
<Handler RecvFromName=radsec.open.com.au>
      ....
<Handler>
CAUTION
This does a reverse name lookup on the address and depending on your environment this may take a number of seconds to resolve.
