7.1.22. Tagged Tunnel attributes and other tagged attributes Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

Radiator supports the IETF RFC 2868 standard tunnel attributes, and also permits you to specify tagged tunnel attributes. Tags are a method of grouping attributes in the same packet which refer to the same tunnel. A tag is an integer from 1 to 31 inclusive. In Radiator you can specify a tag for a tunnel attribute by prefixing it with the tag number and a colon. For example, here are 3 tunnel reply attributes, all with a tag of 1:
Tunnel-Type=1:L2F,
Tunnel-Client-Endpoint=1:xyz,
Tunnel-Password=1:1234
Note
If a tag and colon are not specified, the tag is assumed to be 0. A tag with value 0 in reply attributes may confuse some clients. We recommend using a non-0 value for reply attributes.
Radiator reply attributes that support tags are:
  • Tunnel-Type
  • Tunnel-Medium-Type
  • Tunnel-Client-Endpoint
  • Tunnel-Server-Endpoint
  • Acct-Tunnel-Connection (also called Tunnel-ID)
  • Tunnel-Password
  • Tunnel-Private-Group-ID
  • Tunnel-Assignment-ID
  • Tunnel-Preference
  • Tunnel-Client-Auth-ID
  • Tunnel-Server-Auth-ID
