12.3.2. RADIUS Authentication Server

You can authorize users in the UserGate web console using a RADIUS authentication server, with the console working as a RADIUS client. When authorization is done using a RADIUS server, UserGate sends the username and password information to the RADIUS server, which then responds as to whether or not the authentication was successful.

To add a RADIUS authentication server, click Add, select Add RADIUS server, and provide the following settings:




Enables or disables the use of this authentication server.


The name of the RADIUS authentication server.


An optional description of the server.

Shared secret

Pre-shared key used by the RADIUS protocol for authentication.


Specify the server's IP address and the UDP port on which the RADIUS server listens for authentication requests (the default port number is 1812).

To authorize users in UserGate's web interface using a RADIUS server, you need to configure an authentication profile. For more details on creating and configuring profiles, see the section Realm Authentication Profiles.
