RADIUS Server Setting Description
Profile Name Enter a name to identify the server profile (up to 31 characters). The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
Location Select the scope in which the profile is available. In the context of a firewall that has more than one virtual system (vsys), select a vsys or select Shared (all virtual systems). In any other context, you can’t select the Location ; its value is predefined as Shared (for firewalls) or as Panorama. After you save the profile, you can’t change its Location.
Administrator Use Only Select this option to specify that only administrator accounts can use the profile for authentication. For firewalls that have multiple virtual systems, this option appears only if the Location is Shared.
Timeout Enter an interval in seconds after which an authentication request times out (range is 1–120; default is 3).
Retries Enter the number of automatic retries following a timeout before the request fails (range is 1–5; default is 3).
Servers Configure information for each server in the preferred order. Name —Enter a name to identify the server. RADIUS Server —Enter the server IP address or FQDN. Secret/Confirm Secret —Enter and confirm a key to verify and encrypt the connection between the firewall and the RADIUS server. Port —Enter the server port (range is 1–65,535; default is 1812) for authentication requests.
