RADIUS Authentication

"Ferreira, André"
RADIUS Authentication

If RADIUS receives and ACCESS-REQUEST packet, but RADIUS does not authenticate
against its own database but an external server, does it also send an ACCESS-REQUEST to the
external server?

And does the external server send and ACCESS-ACCEPT with REPLY_MESSAGE information
If authentication is successful?

Thanx.

If your "external server" is a RADIUS server, yes it does. This is
called RADIUS proxying : the server acts as a client for another RADIUS
server.

What your external server does and returns is up to its configuration.
