How To Test RADIUS Using RadTest

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • On Premises
  • SecureAuth version affected: All


    This is a brief explanation of how to use RadTest to test our RADIUS server configuration.


    • First, we’ll create a new task by right clicking and selecting New Task.

    • The general options tab are the standard declarations you will be doing as follows:

    • On the additional packets tab, is where you’ll push username and passwords.  Add a new packet and then add the attributes.  For the first test, you will use just user-name and user-password

    • Run the test and you will receive a challenge request from the RADIUS.  You can also see the reply-message is what the RADIUS server is requesting.  For this, note the state attribute and copy and paste that as we will use that to authenticate the second factor. 

    • Right click your task, and edit it and tab over to additional packets once again.  Ensure you modify the existing packet, and not add another packet.  Here, you will take out the old user-password and type in your reply to the 2FA, in this case will be an OTP.  Add another attribute of state and paste the state you copied earlier. 

    • Go ahead and hit play again to run the task and you should now see access has been granted for that 2FA state.
