Step by Step Guide For Enabling Multi Factor Authentication with Acceptto
Acceptto supports any device or system that uses RADIUS servers for authentication.
Step 1: Download Acceptto Mobile App
If you don't have an Acceptto account and Acceptto mobile application, Download our app and
register a new account on it:
Step 2: Configure OpenVPN
To add Acceptto MFA to any OpenVPN solution you will need to configure it to use RADIUS for user
authentication. You can then follow our RADIUS how-to guide to enable Acceptto MFA
authentication. Please contact Acceptto for RADIUS configuration.
If you don’t have an existing OpenVPN solution, you can use following link to get started and set
one up. Note there are many how-to guides for OpenVPN on different platforms. We used OpenVPN’s
commercial package running on Ubuntu Linux distribution executing on Amazon’s AWS platform to
prove things out. Visit this link for detailed instruction on how to do this:
After configuring your VPN server, use a browser to login into the OpenVPN management console. Go
to the Authentication section. Select RADIUS authentication and point it to a Radius service
configured for Acceptto MFA.
Go to the VPN host address to login into the OpenVPN web based management interface.
OpenVPN web based management interface:
Select authentication and point it to your RADIUS solution by entering IP address or hostname.
At this stage you are done VPN server configuration!
Users accessing VPN will go to the OpenVPN web address and login.
OpenVPN will download appropriate client SW, which the user will use to connect to the remote network. So to summarize, after user types in username and password, OpenVPN will verify user credentials via a RADIUS server configured to authenticate user via Acceptto’s MFA service.
