Radius Authentication Profile

L2 Linker


I am configuring a GP gateway for Radius Authentication 

I am using the CLI test authentication command to test 

I can ping the Radius host and confirmed Secret 

my troubleshooting shows packets allowed by the Security policy 

I cannot see any packets  to the Radius host in the packet captures in any of the stages


what do you think my next steps should be ?

RADIUS host and firewall mgmt interface are in same subnet?

To capture traffic going out from mgmt interface you need to take tcpdump in cli.



Packet capture in web interface shows only traffic that passes Palo dataplane.

first -thank you for your help 

Q can you check the configuration from the screenshots ?

I am trying to ensure my config flow is correct

1 define Radius server

2 define authentication profile 

3 use the authentication profile in the portal/gateway 

I can see the TLS connection/traffic  from my test client to the target VPN in the PA logs at the receive stage 

Q for Radius authentication to work is it a pre-requisite that the management interface has full IP connectivity to the Radius server ?

 there is an  existing working  GP portal configuration  that uses LDAP for authentication 

could this be an issue with the Security policy ?
