This is the FreeRADIUS implementation of the well known radius server program. Even though this program is largely compatible with Livingston’s radius version 2.0, it is not based on any part of that code.
FreeRADIUS is a high-performance and highly configurable RADIUS server. As a result, it can be difficult to configure in systems with complex requirements. Our suggestion is to proceed via the following steps:
RADIUS is a protocol spoken between an access server, typically a device connected to several modems or ISDN lines, and a radius server. When a user connects to the access server, (s)he is asked for a loginname and a password. This information is then sent to the radius server. The server replies with "access denied", or "access OK". In the latter case login information is sent along, such as the IP address in the case of a PPP connection.
The access server also sends login and logout records to the radius server so accounting can be done. These records are kept for each terminal server seperately in a file called detail, and in the wtmp compatible logfile /var/log/radwtmp.

Radiusd uses a number of configuration files. Each file has it’s own manpage describing the format of the file. These files are:
