Restrictions for Radius Attribute 82 Tunnel Assignment ID

This feature is designed only for VPDN dial-in applications. It does not support VPDN dial-out.

Information about RADIUS Attribute 82 Tunnel Assignment ID

The RADIUS Attribute 82: Tunnel Assignment ID feature allows the Layer 2 Transport Protocol access concentrator (LAC) to group users from different per-user or domain RADIUS profiles into the same active tunnel. The RADIUS Attribute 82: Tunnel Assignment ID feature defines a new avpair, Tunnel-Assignment-ID, which allows the LAC to group users from different RADIUS profiles into the same tunnel if the chosen endpoint, tunnel type, and Tunnel-Assignment-ID are identical. This feature introduces new software functionality. No new commands are introduced with this feature.

Benefits

The RADIUS Attribute 82: Tunnel Assignment ID feature improves LAC and L2TP network server (LNS) performance by reducing memory usage, because fewer tunnel data structures must be maintained. This feature allows the LAC and LNS to handle a higher volume of users without negatively impacting router performance.

How to Configure RADIUS Attribute 82 Tunnel Assignment ID

There are not any specific configuration tasks associated with support of this feature.

Verifying RADIUS Attribute 82

To verify that RADIUS attribute 82 is being used by the LAC during tunnel authorization, use the following privileged EXEC command:

Command

Purpose

Router# debug radius

Displays information associated with RADIUS. The output of this command shows whether attribute 82 is being sent in access requests.

Configuration Examples for RADIUS Attribute 82 Tunnel Assignment ID

LAC Configuration Example

The following example shows a sample LAC configuration when the VPDN group is defined on the router:

RADIUS Configuration Example

The following examples configure the RADIUS server to group sessions in a tunnel:

Per-User Configuration

user@router.com Password = "cisco" Service-Type = Outbound,
       Tunnel-Type = :1:L2TP,
       Tunnel-Server-Endpoint = :1:"10.14.10.54",
       Tunnel-Assignment-Id = :1:"router"
client@router.com Password = "cisco" Service-Type = Outbound,
       Tunnel-Type = :1:L2TP,
       Tunnel-Server-Endpoint = :1:"10.14.10.54",
       Tunnel-Assignment-Id = :1:"router"

Domain Configuration

eng.router.com Password = "cisco" Service-Type = Outbound,
        Tunnel-Type = :1:L2TP,
        Tunnel-Server-Endpoint = :1:"10.14.10.54",
        Tunnel-Assignment-Id = :1:"router"
sales.router.com Password = "cisco" Service-Type = Outbound,
        Tunnel-Type = :1:L2TP,
        Tunnel-Server-Endpoint = :1:"10.14.10.54",
        Tunnel-Assignment-Id = :1:"router"
