       radius.so - RADIUS authentication plugin for pppd(8)

       pppd [ options ] plugin radius.so

       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 configura-
       tion files (usually in /etc/radiusclient), consult those files  for  more  information  on
       configuring the RADIUS plugin

       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  con-
	      figuration file.

       avpair attribute=value
	      Adds an Attribute-Value pair to be passed on to the RADIUS server on each request.

	      Sets Radius NAS-Port attribute to number equal to interface name (Default)

	      Sets Radius NAS-Port attribute value via libradiusclient library

       To  use	the  plugin,  simply  supply  the  plugin  radius.so  option  to  pppd,  and edit
       /etc/radiusclient/radiusclient.conf appropriately.  If you use the RADIUS plugin, the nor-
       mal  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.
