3.5.9. BindAddress Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This optional parameter specifies one or more IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to listen for RADIUS requests on. It is only useful if you are running Radiator on a multi-homed host (i.e. a host that has more than one network address). Defaults to 0.0.0.0 (i.e. listens on all IPv4 networks connected to the host). Multiple addresses can be separated with a comma. Radiator will listen for requests on each AuthPort and AcctPort on each BindAddress address.
Using this parameter, you can run multiple instances of Radiator on the one computer, where each Radiator listens to RADIUS requests directed to a different host address. BindAddress can include special formatting characters and multiple IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
# Only listen on one network address
BindAddress 203.63.154.1
You can listen for requests on only some of many multi-homed addresses on this host:
BindAddress 200.10.5.4,200.10.7.3,::1
You can listen for requests directed to a particular IPv6 address:
BindAddress 2001:db8:0100:f101:0210:a4ff:fee3:9566
