Starling Two-Factor Authentication Hosted - RADIUS Agent Administrator Guide

Adding clients

You can add new RADIUS clients to be authenticated through Starling Two-Factor authentication.

To add client details

  1. On the Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent configuration page, click Client Settings.

    The Client Settings window is displayed.

  1. Click Add and provide the following details:
    • IP address: IP address or the range of IP addresses from which the Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent accepts authentication requests. For example:
      • 192.168.70.9: In this case, the Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent allows authentication requests only from this IP address.
      • 192.168.70.0: If a subnet mask is entered in the Subnet Mask field, for example, 255.255.255.0, then Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent allows authentication requests from any IP address on the 192.168.70.0 subnet.
    • Subnet mask (Optional): If you want to specify a range of IP addresses, you have to enter the subnet mask.

      NOTE: If an invalid IP address or subnet mask is configured, authentication requests do not reach the Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent server and you cannot access the required resources.

    • Shared secret: The key that the RADIUS client uses when attempting to establish a connection with the Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent. The client and Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent must have the same shared secret. The shared secret helps to maintain the security between the Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent server and the RADIUS client.
  2. Click Add.
  3. On the Client Settings window that is displayed, click Add to add more clients, or click Save Settings to apply the client settings changes.

    A message is displayed confirming that the clients settings are updated.
