Question: Testing new Radius server

Is it possible to accurately test a specific radius server on eduroam?

I can see most things are working but I want to test visitor access, but from what I understand if you send a test message to it should loop back, but it is not possible to guarantee which of my radius servers it would come back to.

Secondly I want to change our realm name to reflect the company name change. however as I see it you set up radius severs per site not per realm, so how to I make it so that requests to realm X got to radius server 1 and realm Y go to B? Is this possible our do I just need to use the existing radius proxy to do this internally?

Kind regards

in answer to your initial query - you can choose which NRPS to send the request to - however it is down to their logic which ORPS that request will go to.

However, if you only have ONE ORPS thats marked as test/dev then that request will ONLY be sent to that one ORPS. So no problem.

All RADIUS servers are used for all realms in your organisation - if you have requirements for dealing with another realm that must be treated separately then that logic/proxying requirement needs to be done on the ORPS. The ORPS is where a site defines their policy - you shouldn't rely on an external agent for such policy. This approach has been used effectively in many mergers and breakups of organisations within eduroam UK.
