About This Guide

  The RADIUS for UNIX Administrator's Guide provides complete installation, configuration, and troubleshooting instructions for the Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) invented by the InterNetworking Systems of Lucent Technologies, Inc.--formerly Livingston Enterprises, Inc. This guide covers RADIUS server release 2.1 for UNIX platforms.
  RADIUS can be used with the PortMaster® family of products available from Lucent InterNetworking Systems, as well as with the ChoiceNet® client/server packet-filtering software.
  To install and configure these products, see "PortMaster Documentation."


  This guide is designed to be used by qualified system administrators and network managers. Knowledge of UNIX and basic networking concepts is required to successfully install RADIUS for UNIX. If you use RADIUS with third-party products--such as ActivCard or SecurID--you also must be familiar with their installation, configuration, and use.
