Hi,

AS I am not an Extreme employee - my opinion is not an official answer. But AS the underlay Radius Server dies not support radsec right now and i can not find a nach addition to it I think it is not possible now. But a very interesting feature. What is your usecase? Connection to uplink Radius Server?

I thing there are Radsec proxies that receive Radius and send radsec.

Regards
Michael

Hi,

the use case is:  radius server from another company which shall send radius authentication requests to my nac gateway (a 3rd party wireless infrastructure, own radius server infrastracture)

I see,

I assume a VPN Tunnel is established but you want to implement a higher security level.

There is a radsec proxy from UNINETT which is often used for the eduroam project.
