NAME
       squid_radius_auth - Squid RADIUS	authentication helper

SYNOPSIS
       squid_radius_auth -f configfile
       squid_radius_auth -h "server" [-p port] [-i identifier] -w secret

DESCRIPTION
       This  helper allows Squid to connect to a RADIUS	server to validate the
       user name and password of Basic HTTP authentication.

       -f configfile
	      Specifies	the path to a configuration file. See  the  CONFIGURA-
	      TION section for details.

       -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	RADIUS
	      server.  If not specified	the IP address is used as to  identify
	      the proxy.

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

       -t timeout
	      RADIUS request timeout. Default 10 seconds.

       identifier nameofserver
