NAME

       clients.conf - FreeRADIUS client configuration

DESCRIPTION

       The clients.conf file contains definitions of RADIUS clients.

       The  information in this file overrides any information provided in the
       deprecated clients(5) and naslist(5) files.

       The file format is  the  same  as  that  used  for  radiusd.conf.   See
       radiusd.conf(5) for more details.

       Each RADIUS client entry has the following basic form:

              client <hostname|ip-address|ip-network> {
                     <attribute> = <value>
               }

       ip-network  is  used  to  specify  a  network  of clients. Networks are
       specified in  CIDR  notation.  If  multiple  overlapping  networks  are
       defined,  the best match (smallest possible network) will be chosen for
       a packet.

ATTRIBUTES

       The attributes that can appear in a client section  are  listed  below.
       Required  attributes  are  labelled  as  such. All other attributes are
       optional.

       secret [Required]
            The RADIUS  shared  secret  used  for  communication  between  the
            client/NAS and the RADIUS server.

       shortname [Required]
            A short alias that can be used in place of the IP address or fully
            qualified hostname provided in the first line of the section.

       nastype
            The nastype attribute is used to tell the checkrad.pl script which
            NAS-specific  method it should use when checking simultaneous use.

            The following values are currently recognized:
            cisco
            computone
            livingston
            max40xx
            multitech
            netserver
            pathras
            patton
            portslave
            tc
            usrhiper
            other

       login
            Reserved for future use.

       password
            Reserved for future use.

EXAMPLES

              client 127.0.0.1 {
                      secret          = testing123
                      shortname       = localhost
                      nastype         = other
              }

       This adds a client for the loopback address. This is useful in  testing
       the server locally, for example with radclient(1).

              client 192.168.0.0/24 {
                     secret          = testing123-1
                     shortname       = private-network-1
              }

       This entry represents any client from the 192.168.0.0/24 network.
