Freeradius server 3.0.21 released
The FreeRADIUS Server Project is a high performance and highly configurable multi-protocol policy server, supporting RADIUS, DHCPv4, and VMPS. It is available under the terms of the GNU GPLv2. Using RADIUS allows authentication and authorization for a network to be centralized, and minimizes the number of changes that have to be done when adding or deleting new users to a network.
FreeRADIUS can authenticate users on systems such as 802.1x (WiFi), dial-up, PPPoE, VPN’s, VoIP, and many others. It supports back-end databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Microsoft Active Directory, Apache Cassandra, Redis, OpenLDAP, and many more. It is used daily to authenticate Internet access for hundreds of millions of people, in sites ranging from 10 to 10 million+ users.

Configuring the server
- Start off with the default configuration files.
- Save a copy of the default configuration: It WORKS. Don’t change it!
- Verify that the server starts – in debugging mode (
- Send it test packets using “radclient”, or a NAS or AP.
- Verify that the server does what you expect
- If it does not work, change the configuration, and go to step (3)
- If you’re stuck, revert to using the “last working” configuration.
- If it works, proceed to step (6).
- Save a copy of the working configuration, along with a note of what you changed, and why.
- Make a SMALL change to the configuration.
- Repeat from step (3).
