SSL VPN and RADIUS

anybody have a walk through on setting this up.  I have SSL VPN enabled currently on our PA2050 for a few folks however I'm using the local database for it and would like to switch to RADIUS authentication.  I don't currently have a RADIUS server however I was just thinking of using the built in stuff with Win Server 2003 unless someone could recommend something better.  Thanks!

Re: SSL VPN and RADIUS

You need to create a RADIUS profile and then an Authentication Profile that uses the RADIUS Profile.

===========================================

Device Tab.
Server Profiles >> RADIUS
Click "NEW"
- Name     (ASCII text)
- Timeout  (1-30 Secs)
- Retries   (1-5)

Servers: (Max of 4)
- Name
- IP ADDR
- Port (Usually 1812)
- Secret
- Secret confirmed
==========================================
Device Tab:
Authentication Profile
Click "NEW"

Profile Name: (ASCII Text)
Lockout Section:
- Failed Attempts  (0-10)
- Lockout Time:    (0-60 Min)

Allow List Section:
- Click "Edit Allow List"
- Additional users: type "all"
- Click OK
===========================================

Now you can use your Authentication profile for RADIUS instead of an Auth Profile for local DB.

Re: SSL VPN and RADIUS

Well, I know this isn't a Palo Alto probem but I've got all this setup now however I can't get the PA box to talk to my RADIUS server.  Working through that at the moment.  I do have an additional question, I can see us using this feature more heavily in the future.  Is there a way to cap the bandwidth that a SSL VPN session uses?  Am I getting beyond what this device can do, should I start looking at a dedicated appliance (Juniper or Checkpoint perhaps?)?

Yes we can QOS the ssl-vpn traffic, as it is based on the egress zone

Re: SSL VPN and RADIUS

Ok, so RADIUS isn't working out that well for me.  Is there a way to have the SSL VPN sessions authenticate through Active Directory?

Also, would you be able to elaborate more on what your referencing with setting up QoS for this traffic?

Re: SSL VPN and RADIUS

The key is to determine if radius server is communicating with PAN when user attempts to authenticate.

Regarding QOS

This doc should walk thru configuring and testing qos

If you require more information please open a case with support to walk thru your config.
