Example for Configuring Authentication for STelnet Login Users (RADIUS Authentication)


This example applies to all AR models of all versions.

Networking Requirements

Users connect to the Router (AR) through STelnet. During SSH authentication, the Router supports remote RADIUS authentication for SSH users.

When authentication a user, the RADIUS server returns authentication result to the Router. The Router determines whether the user can access the network depending on the authentication result.

  1. Generate a local key pair on Router.

  2. Configure AAA on Router.

  3. Verify the configuration.

    Use the SSH client software to log in to the Router through STelnet from a terminal. The third-party software PuTTY is used as an example here.

    # Use the PuTTY software to log in to the Router, enter the device IP address, and select the SSH protocol type.

    # Click Open. On the displayed page, enter the user name admin and password Huawei@1234 and press Enter to log in to the SSH server. (The following information is for reference only.)

Configuration Notes

  • The Router and RADIUS server must use the same authentication port number.
  • The Router and RADIUS server must use the same shared key.
  • If an SSH user uses password authentication, only the SSH server needs to generate the Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) key pair.
  • There must be a reachable route between the Router and RADIUS server.
