PAM_RADIUS(8)		  BSD 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 RA-
     DIUS (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	in-
		 stead 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).

     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 doesn't exist in local password database.	 The user will
		 be authenticated with the supplied username and password, 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.
