How to configure RADIUS with MySQL as backend database

Hi Guys,

Has anyone tried configuring RADIUS server with MySQL as database..?

The setup is, when a client tries to connect to the network, RADIUS server will forward the request to MySQL databse server to check if the username nd password the client has typed in has a match with what MySQL has in the database before RADIUS server authenticates and authorizes the client.

Guys do you have any hint on how to do this...or any website that can help me with this?..

Another thing is, Does RADIUS server have the capability to allocate a certain bandwith for a certain user after authenticating the client?

I look forward to hear from you guys, thanks a lot..

Configuring FreeRADIUS with MySQL

Hi psychobyte,

Thanks for the information

It will be of great help. I will try and follow the steps in there because right now, I'm having problems authenticating users in my /etc/passwd file... it's giving me errors... the NAS and the FreeRADIUS server is actually communicating but it won't authenticate...

I'll let you know if I still have problems or question regarding the integration of FreeRADIUS server with MySQL
