How to proxy accounting requests to multiple destinations

Hi again,

This subject is misleading and should rather read: How to proxy an accounting request to the same destination twice

I've now also tried with robust-proxy-accounting but it only sends to one of the home_servers.

Any advice or pointers in the right direction will be greatly appreciated!

Subject: How to proxy accounting requests to multiple destinations


I'm running FreeRADIUS 2.1.6 on FreeBSD 7.2 and I need to proxy incoming radius accounting requests to two different ports at the same destination ip. I'm quite inexperienced with freeradius and I'm not sure I've understood completely what I need to do.

I've set up realms, home_servers and home_server_pools in proxy.conf.
I've also made two instances of copy-acct-to-home-server in /sites-enabled and an extra detail file in a separate directory, which one copy-acct-to-home-server reads.

With the configurations I've made accounting requests are being proxied to one port of the destination ip, and the debug output reports for the second instance:

[suffix] Request already proxied.  Ignoring.

Am I correct in the assumption that I need to rewrite the accounting packet so it will be allowed to proxy again? How can I achieve this? Or is there another way to do things?

I'm also puzzled by how I can send to two different home_servers when the packet will of course only match one realm?
