RADIUS: NAS-ID configuration


We use RADIUS as part of our AAA framework. When RADIUS is configured, the VyOS router uses an ID: sshd, which is not its ID but the process name that started the request.

I'd like to expose the feature to set the ID via the CLI.

Currently we're needing to manually change the ID via the /etc/radcli/radiusclient.conf file:

# RADIUS settings

# The name to be used to identify this NAS (server). If set it will
# be used in NAS-Identifier field and will override any such setting
# by the application.
#nas-identifier my-server-name

Basic RADIUS Config:

set system login radius server x.x.x.x key xxxx
set system login radius server x.x.x.x port 1812
set system login radius server x.x.x.x timeout 15
set system login radius source-address y.y.y.y

Currently Running:
