NAME

clients.conf - FreeRADIUS client configuration

DESCRIPTION

The clients.conf file contains definitions of RADIUS clients.
The information in this file overrides any information provided in the deprecated clients(5) and naslist(5) files.
The file format is the same as that used for radiusd.conf. See radiusd.conf(5) for more details.
Each RADIUS client entry has the following basic form:
client <short-name> {
       <attribute> = <value>
 }
    

ATTRIBUTES

The attributes that can appear in a client section are listed below. Required attributes are labelled as such. All other attributes are optional.
ipaddr [Required]
The IP address of the client. For IPv6, use "ipv6addr"
secret [Required]
The RADIUS shared secret used for communication between the client/NAS and the RADIUS server.
shortname [optional]
A short alias that can be used in place of the IP address or fully qualified hostname provided in the first line of the section.
nastype
The nastype attribute is used to tell the checkrad.pl script which NAS-specific method it should use when checking simultaneous use.
 
The following values are currently recognized:
cisco
computone
livingston
max40xx
multitech
netserver
pathras
patton
portslave
tc
usrhiper
other
    
login
Reserved for future use.
password
Reserved for future use.

EXAMPLES

client localhost {
        ipaddr          = 127.0.0.1
        secret          = testing123
        shortname       = localhost
        nastype         = other     
}
    
This adds a client for the loopback address. This is useful in testing the server locally, for example with radclient(1).
client private-network-1 {
        ipaddr          = 192.168.0.0
        netmask         = 24
        secret          = testing123-1
        shortname       = private-network-1
}
    
This entry represents any client from the 192.168.0.0/24 network.
 
The old-style format from 1.x is still accepted by the server, but that form is deprecated.
