NAMEradmin - FreeRADIUS Administration tool
SYNOPSISradmin [-d config_directory] [-e command] [-E] [-f socket_file] [-h] [-i input_file] [-n name] [-q]
DESCRIPTIONFreeRADIUS Server administration tool that connects to the control socket of a running server, and gives a command-line interface to it.
WARNINGThe security protections offered by this command are limited to the permissions on the Unix domain socket, and the server configuration. If someone can connect to the Unix domain socket, they have a substantial amount of control over the server.
OPTIONSThe following command-line options are accepted by the program.
- -d config directory
- Defaults to /etc/raddb. radmin looks here for the server configuration files to find the "listen" section that defines the control socket filename.
- -e command
- Run command and exit.
- Echo commands as they are being executed.
- -f socket_file
- Specify the socket filename directly. The radiusd.conf file is not read.
- Print usage help information.
- -i input_file
- Reads input from the specified file. If not specified, stdin is used. This also sets "-q".
- -n mname
- Read raddb/name.conf instead of raddb/radiusd.conf.
- Quiet mode.
COMMANDSThe commands implemented by the command-line interface are almost completely controlled by the server. There are a few commands interpreted locally by radmin:
- Reconnect to the server.
- Exit from radmin.
- Exit from radmin.
- debug file /var/log/radius/bob.log
- Set debug logs to /var/log/radius/bob.log. There is very little checking of this filename. Rogue administrators may be able use this command to over-write almost any file on the system. If those administrators have write access to "radius.conf", they can do the same thing without radmin, too.
- debug condition '(User-Name == bob)'
Enable debugging output for all requests that match the condition.
Any "unlang" condition is valid here. The condition is parsed as a
string, so it must be enclosed in single or double quotes. Strings
enclosed in double-quotes must have back-slashes and the quotation
marks escaped inside of the string.
Only one debug condition can be active at a time.
- debug condition '((User-Name == "bob") || (Packet-Src-IP-Address == 192.0.2.22))'
- A more complex condition that enables debugging output for requests containing User-Name "bob", or requests that originate from source IP address 192.0.2.22.
- debug condition
- Disable debug conditionals.
