       radeapclient - send EAP packets to a RADIUS server, calculate responses


       radeapclient  [-4] [-6] [-c count] [-d raddb_directory] [-f file] [-h] [-i source_ip] [-q]
       [-s] [-r retries] [-S file] [-t timeout] [-v] [-x] server {acct|auth} secret


       radeapclient is a radius client program. It can send arbitrary radius packets to a  radius
       server,  then  shows the reply. Radeapclient differs from radclient in that if there is an
       EAP-MD5 challenge, then it will be responded to.

       radeapclient is otherwise identical to radclient.

       The EAP-Identity attribute, if present is used to construct an EAP Identity message.

       The EAP-MD5-Password attribute, if present is used to respond to an MD5 challenge.

       No other EAP types are currently supported.


       -4     Use IPv4 (default)

       -6     Use IPv6

       -c count
              Send each packet count times.

       -d raddb
              Set dictionary directory.

       -f file
              Read packets from file, not stdin.

       -r retries
              If timeout, retry sending the packet retries times.

       -t timeout
              Wait timeout seconds before retrying (may be a floating point number).

       -h     Print usage help information.

       -i id  Set request id to 'id'.  Values may be 0..255

       -S file
              Read secret from file, not command line.

       -q     Quiet, do not print anything out.

       -s     Print out summary information of auth results.

       -v     Show program version information.

       -x     Enable debugging mode.


       A sample session that queries the remote server with an EAP-MD5 challenge.

              ( echo 'User-Name = "bob"';
                echo 'EAP-MD5-Password = "hello"';
                echo 'NAS-IP-Address = marajade.sandelman.ottawa.on.c';
                echo 'EAP-Code = Response';
                echo 'EAP-Id = 210';
                echo 'EAP-Type-Identity = "bob";
                echo 'Message-Authenticator = 0x00';
                echo 'NAS-Port = 0' ) >req.txt

              radeapclient -x localhost auth testing123 <req.txt
