Specifying how long the switch waits for a server response


[no] aaa port-access mac-based <port-list> [server-timeout <1-300>]

Specifies the period, in seconds, the switch waits for a server response to an authentication request. If there is no response within the configured time frame, the switch assumes that the authentication attempt has timed out. Depending on the current max-requests value, the switch sends a new request or ends the authentication session.

Default: 300 seconds

If RADIUS server response is not received and server timeout occurs, a new authentication request is send based on the configuration of max-requests. Default value of max-requests is 3.
