Object Description
Global Configuration
Timeout Timeout is the number of seconds (1 – 1000), to wait for a reply from a RADIUS server before retransmitting the request.
Retransmit Retransmit is the number of times (1 – 1000) a RADIUS request is retransmitted to a server that is not responding. If the server has not responded after the last retransmit it is considered to be dead.
Deadtime Deadtime (0 – 1440 minutes) is the period during which the switch will not send new requests to a server that has failed to respond to a previous request. This will stop the switch from continually trying to contact a server that it has already determined as dead.

Setting the Deadtime to a value greater than 0 (zero) will enable this feature, but only if more than one server has been configured.

Key The secret key—up to 63 characters long—shared between the RADIUS server and the switch.
NAS-IP-Address(Attribute 4) The IPv4 address to be used as attribute 4 in RADIUS Access-Request packets. If this field is left blank, the IP address of the outgoing interface is used.
NAS-IPv6-Address(Attribute 95) The IPv6 address to be used as attribute 95 in RADIUS Access-Request packets. If this field is left blank, the IP address of the outgoing interface is used.
NAS-Identifier (Attribute 32) The identifier (up to 253 characters long) to be used as attribute 32 in RADIUS Access-Request packets. If this field is left blank, the NAS-Identifier is not included in the packet.
