- Duration: 2 days
This two-day course discusses the configuration for Juniper Networks Steel-Belted Radius Carrier. Key topics include installation, client configuration, users, authentication, and replication. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring, testing, and troubleshooting basic aspects of SBR Carrier. This course uses SBR Carrier software running on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux server for the hands-on component. This course is based on SBR Carrier Standalone software release 7.5.0.
