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.
