How to assign ACLs to Cisco VPN user via RADIUS

While setting up per user ACLs in RADIUS for my VPN users I noticed some issues with current on-line documentation. I am using a Cisco ASA 9.2(2) as the VPN concentrator and FreeRADIUS 3.0.2 as the RADIUS server.  In the RADIUS users file you need to add your ACLs in this manner:

testuser1  Cleartext-Password := "testme"
   Cisco-AVPair = "ip:inacl#101=permit ip any",
   Cisco-AVPair += "ip:inacl#102=deny ip any any",
   Service-Type = Framed-User,
   Framed-Protocol = PPP,
   Framed-IP-Address =,
   Framed-IP-Netmask =,
   Reply-Message = "This is a test message"

You should notice the use of "ip:inacl" not "ip.inacl" as most current on-line documentation suggests.  Also, make sure you use "+=" for every line other than the first. 


  1. You can configure downloadable access lists on Cisco Secure ACS 5.x as a Named Permissions Object and then assign it to an Authorization Profile which will be chosen in the result section of the Rule in the Access-Service.
