Radius Accounting

Is there a way to configure the boxes to act as a NAS by sending a Radius Server (like Freeradius) accounting information? I am particularly interested on the session start and session stop attributes. I am about to provide Globalprotect VPN access to a community of users and need to account the resource use in the same Radius server where the authentication is done. Thank you for your help.

The on logs I remember about it are the following in the system logs, not sure it those are the ones you're looking for.

globalprotect informational globalprotectgateway-auth-succ GlobalProtect gateway user authentication succeeded. Login from:, User name: username.
globalprotect informational globalprotectgateway-config-release

GlobalProtect gateway client configuration released. User name: username, Private IP:

globalprotect informational globalprotectgateway-logout-succ GlobalProtect gateway user logout succeeded. User name: username, Reason: reason.


Currently the only way to send the system logs is forwarding to a syslog server, so the syslog server needs to parse them and resend them to your radius probably using a custom script.

Another way will be to create a script using the xml api in order to query the logs, parse the info and resends it to the radius server.Hope it helps,
