Configure RSA RADIUS Administration on a Multi-homed host
Trying to configure RSA RADIUS authentication should only listen on specific interfaces.
Trying to configure RSA RADIUS Management and RSA RADIUS Authentication occur on separate interfaces.
ResolutionBy default, RSA RADIUS Authentication will listen on all available interfaces, using both 1812 and 1645 ports for authentication.  This can be configured in the radius.ini file on the RSA RADIUS Server.  (See Page 19 of the rsa_radius_ref.pdf that comes with yout 6.1 Authentication Manager Software/Download.)  Any IP addresses under the [Address} section, will be used for authentication.  If nothing specified, RSA RADIUS will listen on all interfaces.
RSA RADIUS Administration can be sent to "alias" address on the RSA RADIUS Server, by using Database Administration Host or Remote Mode, (Windows), or sdadmin, (Unix/Linux).
     Agent Host > Edit Agent Host > Select the RSA RADIUS Server Host > Agent Type should equal RADIUS Server
          Select 'Configure RADIUS Connection'
               Under 'RADIUS Server Configuration', you can designate other IP's as an Alias...even down to the port, (1813 by default).
