Using an External AAA Server

If you want to authenticate users against an external Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) server, you will need to first configure your AAA server, then point ZoneDirector to the AAA server so that requests will be passed through ZoneDirector before access is granted.

This section describes the tasks that you need to perform on ZoneDirector to ensure ZoneDirector can communicate with your AAA server.

For specific instructions on AAA server configuration, refer to the documentation that is supplied with your server.

ZoneDirector supports the following types of AAA server:

  • Active Directory for Web Portal
  • Active Directory for 802.1X
  • LDAP
  • RADIUS Accounting

A maximum of 32 AAA server entries can be created, regardless of server type.
