Starling Two-Factor Authentication Hosted - RADIUS Agent Administrator Guide

Adding clients

To add client details:

  1. Click the Client Settings tab.
  2. Click Add and provide the following details:
    • IP address: IP address or the range of IP addresses from which Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent accepts authentication requests. For example,
      • 192.168.70.9: In this case, Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent allows authentication requests only from this IP address.
      • 192.168.70.0: In this case, Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent allows authentication requests from any IP address on the 192.168.70.0 subnet (Subnet mask 255.255.255.0 must be specified).
    • Subnet mask: This is an optional field. 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 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 Starling Two-Factor RADIUS Agent server and the RADIUS client.
