The huntgroups file is the FreeRADIUS configuration file that defines groups of clients (NASes) by default.

This is usually located at /etc/raddb/huntgroups on a server system. Here you can define different huntgroups. These can be used to:

  • restrict access to certain huntgroups to certain users/groups of users (define this in the huntgroups file itself)
  • match a login name with a huntgroup in /etc/raddb/users. One use for this is to give a user a static IP address based on the huntgroup / Point of Presence the user dials in to.
The parsing of the huntgroups file is activated by the module named preprocess.
