NAME

clients - RADIUS clients file  

DESCRIPTION

The clients file resides in the radius database directory, by default /etc/raddb. Its use is depreciated in favour of clients.conf.

Every line starting with a hash sign ('#') is treated as comment and ignored.

Each line of the file contains two white-space delimited fields.

client hostname
The RADIUS clients hostname. This may be a plain hostname, or a dotted-quad IP address.
secret
This is the so-called "shared secret" that is held between a RADIUS server and client. It is used to encrypt passwords in RADIUS packets, and also for authentication. You need to configure the same secret on the client (terminal server) as in this file.

The clients file is read by radiusd on startup only.
