ATTRIBUTE Strip-User-Name 1035 integer
VALUE Strip-User-Name No 0 VALUE Strip-User-Name Yes 1
The value of
Strip-User-Name indicates whether Radius should
strip any prefixes/suffixes specified in the user's profile from the
user name. When it is set to
Yes, the user names will be logged and
accounted without any prefixes or suffixes.
A user may have several user names for different kind of services. In this case differentiating the user names by their prefixes and stripping them off before accounting would help keep accounting records consistent.
For example, let's suppose the ‘users’ file contains
DEFAULT Suffix = ".ppp", Strip-User-Name = Yes, Auth-Type = SQL Service-Type = Framed-User, Framed-Protocol = PPP DEFAULT Suffix = ".slip", Strip-User-Name = Yes, Auth-Type = SQL Service-Type = Framed-User, Framed-Protocol = SLIP
Now, user ‘johns’, having a valid account in the SQL database, logs in as ‘johns.ppp’. She then is provided the PPP service, and her PPP session is accounted under user name ‘johns’. Later on, she logs in as ‘johns.slip’. In this case she is provided the SLIP service and again her session is accounted under her real user name ‘johns’.
