Configuring the Centrify Connector for use as a RADIUS server

To enable communication between your RADIUS client and the connector (acting as a RADIUS server), do the following:

  1. Make configuration changes in the Admin Portal to designate the connector as a RADIUS server, add the RADIUS client information, and define the requirement for a secondary authentication mechanism. See Configuring the Admin Portal (connector as a RADIUS server).
  2. Configure the RADIUS client (for example Cisco VPN, Juniper VPN, and Palo Alto VPN). See Setting up a RADIUS client for client configuration details.

Configuring the Admin Portal (connector as a RADIUS server)

Make configuration changes in the Admin Portal to designate the connector as a RADIUS server, define the RADIUS client information, and define the requirement for a secondary authentication mechanism.

Setting up a RADIUS client

The steps for configuring a RADIUS client to work with the Centrify Connector vary for each client. Refer to your RADIUS client documentation for the configuration procedure and guidelines.

At a high level, you consistently need the following information regardless of the RADIUS client device:

  • IP address of the Centrify Connector
  • The secret key you provide to the RADIUS client and Admin Portal must match exactly

Important: For Open VPN, the Centrify Connector only supports the PAP authentication method.
