NAME
       radius -	nnrpd RADIUS password authenticator

SYNOPSIS
       radius [-h] [-f config]

DESCRIPTION
       radius is an nnrpd authenticator, accepting a username and password
       from nnrpd (given to nnrpd by a reader connection) and attempting to
       authenticate that username and password against a RADIUS	server.	 See
       readers.conf(5) for more	information on how to configure	an nnrpd
       authenticator.  It is useful for	a site that already does user
       authentication via RADIUS and wants to authenticate news	reading
       connections as well.

       By default, radius reads	pathetc/inn-radius.conf	for configuration
       information, but	a different configuration file can be specified	with
       -f.  See	inn-radius.conf(5) for a description of	the configuration
       file.

OPTIONS
       -f config
	   Read	config instead of pathetc/inn-radius.conf for configuration
	   information.

       -h  Print out a usage message and exit.

EXAMPLE
       The following readers.conf(5) fragment tells nnrpd to authenticate all
       connections using this authenticator:

	   auth	radius {
	       auth: radius
	       default:	<FAIL>
	       default-domain: example.com
	   }

       "@example.com" will be appended to the user-supplied identity, and if
       RADIUS authentication fails, the	user will be assigned an identity of
       "<FAIL>@example.com".

BUGS
       It has been reported that this authenticator doesn't work with Ascend
       RADIUS servers, but does	work with Cistron RADIUS servers.  It's	also
       believed	to work	with Livingston's RADIUS server.  Contributions	to
       make it work better with	different types	of RADIUS servers would	be
       gratefully accepted.

       This code has not been audited against the RADIUS protocol and may not
       implement it correctly.

HISTORY
       The RADIUS authenticator	was originally written by Aidan	Cully.	This
       documentation was written by Russ Allbery <eagle@eyrie.org>.
