NAME - RADIUS authentication plugin for pppd(8) SYNOPSIS
pppd [ options ] plugin 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 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. SEE ALSO
