Symptoms

A user is using RADIUS Manager from Infranet to receive and log RADIUS messages. On the production server he has configured several IP addresses:

Primary + Secondary (using aliasing)

For RADIUS messages received on a Secondary IP address Infranet RADIUS Server sends ACK messages using the Primary server address. This leads to many retry messages from the RADIUS client and thus to duplicate unnecessary messages.

In details, for the user, Infranet + RADIUS is set up on one machine with

Primary IP=xxx.xx.xx.100
Secondary IP=xxx.xx.xx.200

Requests are sent from another machine (xxx.xx.xx.300), using rad_tester.

For the first request

rad_tester -h xxx.xx.xx.100 -p 1812 -a 1813...

the Primary IP is specified as server address and the user receives an NAK answer.

For the second request

rad_tester -h xxx.xx.xx.200 -p 1812 -a 1813...

the secondary IP is specified as server address and the user does not receive any answer from it.

How can one specify in the Infranet RADIUS configuration the IP address that should be included in ACK messages?

Is there a parameter for the RADIUS Server that specifies the bind address (all open sockets will be on a specific, configurable network interface. All request will be accepted only with this address as destination IP and all responses would be sent from this address)?
