NAME
       basic_radius_auth - Squid RADIUS	authentication helper

SYNOPSIS
       basic_radius_auth -f config file
       basic_radius_auth -h " server name " [-p	port ] [-i identifier ]	-w se-
       cret [-t	timeout	]

DESCRIPTION
       basic_radius_auth allows	Squid to connect to a RADIUS server  to	 vali-
       date the	user name and password of Basic	HTTP authentication.

OPTIONS
       -f configfile
		   Specifies the path to a configuration file. See the CONFIG-
		   URATION section for details on the file content.

       -h server   Alternative method of specifying the	server to connect to

       -p port	   Specify another server port where the RADIUS	server listens
		   for	requests  if  different	 from the default RADIUS port.
		   Normally not	specified.

       -i identifier
		   Unique identifier identifying this Squid proxy to  the  RA-
		   DIUS	 server.   If  not specified the IP address is used to
		   identify the	proxy.

       -w secret   Alternative method of specifying the	shared	secret.	 Using
		   the	-f  option with	a configuration	file is	generally more
		   secure and recommended.

       -t timeout  RADIUS request timeout. Default is 10 seconds.

CONFIGURATION
       The configuration specifies how the helper  connects  to	 RADIUS.   The
       file contains a list of directives (one per line). Lines	beginning with
       a # are ignored.

	      specifies	the name or address of the RADIUS  server  to  connect
	      to.

	      specifies	the shared RADIUS secret.

       identifier nameofserver
	      specifies	 what  name the	proxy should use to identify itself to
	      the RADIUS server.  This directive is optional.

       port portnumber
	      Specifies	the port number	 or  service  name  where  the	helper
	      should connect.
