— Installation manual — Andman - andman@ppnnet.net 2005/08/03 06:31


First step:
You need to download and install the latest version of FreeRaduis [http://www.freeradius.org]

server$ tar zxvf freeradius-1.0.1.tar.gz  
server$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/radiusd/
server$ make

(here you need to become superuser root)

server# make install

If you don't see any errors - congratulations you have successfully installed radius server:

Next step is to configure radius server:

server# vi /usr/local/radiusd/etc/raddb/users
DEFAULT Auth-Type = Accept
  Exec-Program-Wait = "/usr/abills/libexec/rauth.pl"
server# vi /usr/local/radiusd/etc/raddb/acct_users 
DEFAULT Acct-Status-Type == Start
   Exec-Program = "/usr/abills/libexec/racct.pl"
DEFAULT Acct-Status-Type == Alive
   Exec-Program = "/usr/abills/libexec/racct.pl"
DEFAULT Acct-Status-Type == Stop
   Exec-Program = "/usr/abills/libexec/racct.pl"
 server# vi /usr/local/radiusd/etc/raddb/clients.conf

Put the IP or the name of your NAS server:

client nashost.nasdomain {
   secret = radsecret
   shortname = shorrname
server# vi /usr/local/radiusd/etc/raddb/radiusd.conf

The following lines have to be commented:

authorize {
# chap
# counter
# attr_filter
# eap
# etc_smbpasswd
# sql
# mschap


Download the tarball from [http://www.mysql.com]

 server$ tar xvfz mysql-4.0.23a.tar.gz
 server$ cd mysql-4.0.23a
 server$ ./configure
 server$ make
 server# make install

Create user and database:

use mysql; INSERT INTO user (Host, User, Password) VALUES ('%','abills', password('sqlpassword')); INSERT INTO db (Host, Db, User, Select_priv, Insert_priv, Update_priv, Delete_priv, Create_priv, Drop_priv, Index_priv, Alter_priv) VALUES ('localhost', 'abills', 'abills', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y', 'Y');

server# mysqladmin flush-privileges;

Create tables in the database:

server# mysql -D abills < abills.sql

libnet Only for UNIX type authorization
