Question FreeRADIUS VMPS Configuration

I could use some help with freeradius configuration. If there is any expert user out there kind enough to give me a hand, would really appreciate it.


We are trying to use the freeRADIUS server's VMPS integration feature. Unfortunately the wiki pages do not have real life deployment examples.

1. Has anyone out there successfully deployed FreeRADIUS on a Cisco shop to act as VMPS server?

2. According to the radiusd.conf file, the clients.conf file should be configured as followed: Am I on the right track?

secret=< shared secret >

client {
secret = <shared secret>

3. Now for the VMPS file, should the clients statement be as follwed.....?

client 10.x.x.1 secret < shared secret >
client 10.x.x.1 secret < shared secret >
# and so on

4. for the # Do a simple mapping of MAC to VLAN section, should the statements be as followed:

address 0000.0c07.ac01 vlan-name XYZ

rlm_unix(5)							 FreeRADIUS Module						       rlm_unix(5)

rlm_unix - FreeRADIUS Module DESCRIPTION
The rlm_unix module reads crypt(3) passwords from the system password file, and allows the server to use them for authentication. The mod- ule also provides FreeRADIUS an interface into a radwtmp file (used by "radlast") when added to the accounting section. The rlm_unix module does provides the functionality for "Auth-Type = System". The module should be listed in the "authenticate" section. Please see the default radiusd.conf shipped with the server for an example of the correct usage of this module. As of FreeRADIUS 1.1.0, the module no longer reads, or caches /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, or /etc/group. If you wish to cache those files, see rlm_passwd. Most, if not all, configurations should not need those files to be cached. The main configuration items to be aware of are: radwtmp The path to the system wtmp file to be used for keeping the database of online users as read by the 'radlast' program. CONFIGURATION
