SOCKS proxy with RADIUS for auth and accounting


I had a look at the common and popular SOCKS proxies, some have a commercial bundle that supports LDAP and bandwidth limiting.

We're currently using FreeRADIUS for AAA and I'm wondering if there is a SOCKS proxy that could authenticate and send accounting data to RADIUS without its own custom AAA solution?
TBH, SSH socks proxy would work great if only there was a way to get traffic accounting data.

Thanks, I'd seen that. Dante only supports authentication via RADIUS, not user accounting. If Dante/$SOCKS_PROXY server does not send accounting data, it's not possible to limit users by the amount of data they consume.

I know that SOCKS proxy is wilder support than HTTP proxy. But if you want a complicated accounting support, such as limit of bandwidth or limit amount of data, HTTP proxy is only option I know.
