Note: you need current for this to work (thread stuff)
All code in this server was written from scratch.
The server is mostly compatible with livingston radiusd-2.01
(no menus or s/key support though) but with more feautures, such as:
o Can limit max. number of simultaneous logins on a per-user basis!
o Multiple DEFAULT entries, that can optionally fall-through.
o In fact, every entry can fall-through
o Deny/permit access based on huntgroup users dials into
o Set certain parameters (such as static IP address) based on huntgroup
o Extra "hints" file that can select SLIP/PPP/rlogin based on
username pattern (Puser or user.ppp is PPP, plain "user" is rlogin etc).
o Can execute an external program when user has authenticated (for example
to run a sendmail queue).
o Can use `$INCLUDE filename' in radiusd.conf, users, and dictionary files
o Can act as a proxy server, relaying requests to a remote server
o Supports Vendor-Specific attributes
o No good documentation at all, just like the original radiusd 1.16!
Then of course for general RADIUS questions, especially if you are using
Livingston / Lucent RABU equipment, there is the portmaster-radius mailing
list. Send mail to email@example.com to find
