RADIUS (Accounting Server). SMDR/CDR data format and connection settings

This data is being extracted with help of the "Advanced PBX Data Logger" software only. It may not applicable for other software titles.

RADIUS (Accounting Server)

The logger can implement a basic RADIUS accounting server. This server is capable of gathering and storing accounting billing information from RADIUS compatible PBXs. It records various details, including session duration, calling and called numbers, types of services used, and more. The number of logged values varies depending on the PBX model.

1. Configure your PBX to send CDR records to a computer with our logger. Specify the IP address of the computer with our logger in the PBX settings. The default TCP port for RADIUS accounting data is 1813.

RADIUS specific settings in PBX Logger

Specify the shared secret word that you've configured in PBX in the PBX Logger settings (Configuration → Modules → Query Parse Filter → Setup).

RADIUS Server Shared Secret

Please note that our software can only decode accounting data. Therefore, if possible in the PBX settings, please disable the sending of authentication data to our basic RADIUS server.

Configuring Advanced PBX Data Logger as a UDP server

Advanced PBX Data Logger should be configured to the UDP server mode and listen on (see below). The IP address allows receiving data from all network connections on your computer. The port number should match the value from the SMDR settings in your RADIUS [Accounting Server].

1. Add a new configuration with the UDP data source (if you didn't it before).

UDP Data Interface

2. Configure the IP settings as shown below.
