PAM_RADIUS(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		 PAM_RADIUS(8)

NAME
     pam_radius	-- RADIUS authentication PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type	control-flag pam_radius	[options]

DESCRIPTION
     The pam_radius module provides authentication services based upon the
     RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial	In User	Service) protocol for the PAM
     (Pluggable	Authentication Module) framework.

     The pam_radius module accepts these optional parameters:

     use_first_pass
		 causes	pam_radius to use a previously entered password
		 instead of prompting for a new	one.  If no password has been
		 entered then authentication fails.

     try_first_pass
		 causes	pam_radius to use a previously entered password, if
		 one is	available.  If no password has been entered,
		 pam_radius prompts for	one as usual.

     echo_pass	 causes	echoing	to be left on if pam_radius prompts for	a
		 password.

     conf=pathname
		 specifies a non-standard location for the RADIUS client con-
		 figuration file (normally located in /etc/radius.conf).

     nas_id=identifier
		 specifies a NAS identifier to send instead of the hostname.

     template_user=username
		 specifies a user whose	passwd(5) entry	will be	used as	a tem-
		 plate to create the session environment if the	supplied user-
		 name does not exist in	local password database.  The user
		 will be authenticated with the	supplied username and pass-
		 word, but his credentials to the system will be presented as
		 the ones for username,	i.e., his login	class, home directory,
		 resource limits, etc. will be set to ones defined for
		 username.

		 If this option	is omitted, and	there is no username in	the
		 system	databases equal	to the supplied	one (as	determined by
		 call to getpwnam(3)), the authentication will fail.

     nas_ipaddr[=address]
		 specifies a NAS IP address to be sent.	 If option is present,
		 but there is no value provided	then IP	address	corresponding
		 to the	current	hostname will be used.
