NAME

       radius.so - RADIUS authentication plugin for pppd(8)

SYNOPSIS

       pppd [ options ] plugin radius.so

DESCRIPTION

       The  RADIUS  plugin  for  pppd  permits  pppd  to perform PAP, CHAP, MS-CHAP and MS-CHAPv2
       authentication against a RADIUS server  instead  of  the  usual  /etc/ppp/pap-secrets  and
       /etc/ppp/chap-secrets files.

       The  RADIUS  plugin  is  built  on  a  library  called  radiusclient  which  has  its  own
       configuration  files  (usually  in  /etc/radiusclient),  consult  those  files  for   more
       information on configuring the RADIUS plugin

OPTIONS

       The RADIUS plugin introduces one additional pppd option:

       radius-config-file filename
              The  file filename is taken as the radiusclient configuration file.  If this option
              is not used,  then  the  plugin  uses  /etc/radiusclient/radiusclient.conf  as  the
              configuration file.

       avpair attribute=value
              Adds an Attribute-Value pair to be passed on to the RADIUS server on each request.

       map-to-ifname
              Sets Radius NAS-Port attribute to number equal to interface name (Default)

       map-to-ttyname
              Sets Radius NAS-Port attribute value via libradiusclient library

USAGE

       To  use  the  plugin,  simply  supply  the  plugin  radius.so  option  to  pppd,  and edit
       /etc/radiusclient/radiusclient.conf appropriately.  If you  use  the  RADIUS  plugin,  the
       normal  pppd  authentication  schemes  (login,  checking the /etc/ppp/*-secrets files) are
       skipped.  The RADIUS server should assign an IP address  to  the  peer  using  the  RADIUS
       Framed-IP-Address attribute.
