NAME

       basic_radius_auth - Squid RADIUS authentication helper

SYNOPSIS

       basic_radius_auth -f config file
       basic_radius_auth -h server name  port ] [-i identifier ] -w secret [-t timeout ]

DESCRIPTION

       basic_radius_auth allows Squid to connect to a RADIUS server to validate the user name and
       password of Basic HTTP authentication.

OPTIONS

       -f configfile
                   Specifies the path to a configuration file. See the CONFIGURATION section  for
                   details on the file content.

       -h server   Alternative method of specifying the server to connect to

       -p port     Specify  another  server  port where the RADIUS server listens for requests if
                   different from the default RADIUS port.  Normally not specified.

       -i identifier
                   Unique identifier identifying this Squid proxy to the RADIUS server.   If  not
                   specified the IP address is used to identify the proxy.

       -w secret   Alternative method of specifying the shared secret. Using the -f option with a
                   configuration file is generally more secure and recommended.

       -t timeout  RADIUS request timeout. Default is 10 seconds.

CONFIGURATION

       The configuration specifies how the helper connects to RADIUS.  The file contains  a  list
       of directives (one per line). Lines beginning with a # are ignored.

       server radiusserver
              specifies the name or address of the RADIUS server to connect to.

       secret somesecretstring
              specifies the shared RADIUS secret.

       identifier nameofserver
              specifies  what  name the proxy should use to identify itself to the RADIUS server.
              This directive is optional.

       port portnumber
              Specifies the port number or service name where the helper should connect.
