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 <short-name> {
                     <attribute> = <value>
               }

ATTRIBUTES

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

       ipaddr [Required]
            The IP address of the client.  For IPv6, use "ipv6addr"

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

       shortname [optional]
            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 localhost {
                      ipaddr          = 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 private-network-1 {
                      ipaddr          = 192.168.0.0
                      netmask         = 24
                      secret          = testing123-1
                      shortname       = private-network-1
              }

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

       The old-style format from 1.x is still accepted by the server, but that
       form is deprecated.
