radius.so - RADIUS authentication plugin for pppd(8)


   pppd [ options ] plugin radius.so


   The  RADIUS  plugin for pppd permits pppd to perform PAP, CHAP, MS-CHAP
   and MS-CHAPv2 authentication against a RADIUS  server  instead  of  the
   usual /etc/ppp/pap-secrets and /etc/ppp/chap-secrets files.

   The  RADIUS  plugin is built on a library called radiusclient which has
   its own configuration files  (usually  in  /etc/radiusclient),  consult
   those files for more information on configuring the RADIUS plugin


   The RADIUS plugin introduces one additional pppd option:

   radius-config-file filename
          The  file  filename  is  taken as the radiusclient configuration
          file.  If  this  option  is  not  used,  then  the  plugin  uses
          /etc/radiusclient/radiusclient.conf as the configuration file.

   avpair attribute=value
          Adds  an  Attribute-Value  pair  to  be  passed on to the RADIUS
          server on each request.

          Sets Radius NAS-Port attribute to number equal to interface name

          Sets Radius NAS-Port attribute value via libradiusclient library


   To  use  the plugin, simply supply the plugin radius.so option to pppd,
   and edit /etc/radiusclient/radiusclient.conf appropriately.  If you use
   the  RADIUS  plugin,  the  normal  pppd  authentication schemes (login,
   checking the /etc/ppp/*-secrets files) are skipped.  The RADIUS  server
   should  assign  an  IP  address to the peer using the RADIUS Framed-IP-
   Address attribute.
