Q:

Can we enable Wired accounting on IAP?



A:

Wired-Accounting support Radius accounting for wired client. With this feature enabled,  IAP will send Radius accounting packet to accounting server after client

pass Radius authentication.  The behavior of wired accounting is same with wireless accounting. This article is applicable to IAP running 4.2 code. 

 

Enable accounting in wired-port-profile

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (config) # wired-port-profile test 

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (wired ap profile test) # radius-accounting                                                            ------ enable accounting

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (wired ap profile test) # radius-interim-accounting-interval  10                             ------ accounting interval

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (wired ap profile test) # end

00:0b:86:a0:d9:003# commit apply

 

Running config would be as below:-

 

 

Use separate accounting mode

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (config) # wired-port-profile test 

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (wired ap profile test) # radius-accounting                                                            ------ enable accounting

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (wired ap profile test) # radius-interim-accounting-interval  10                             ------ accounting interval

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (wired ap profile test) # accounting-server acct-server-1                                      ------ configure separate accounting server

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (wired ap profile test) # accounting-server acct-server-2                                      ------ configure separate accounting server

00:0b:86:a0:d9:00 (wired ap profile test) # end

00:0b:86:a0:d9:003# commit apply

 

 

Enable wired accounting via UI

 

show clients status <mac>”, check client accounting status and session-id

 

“show ap debug auth-trace-buf”,  check accouting record

 

security syslog,  check accounting packet detail info 

 

Packet capture for accounting packet
