RADIUS Options   C

  You issue the radiusd  command with options to perform various actions in RADIUS for UNIX. Table 3-1 describes the actions and commands.

  Table 3-1 RADIUS Actions and UNIX Commands  

  RADIUS Action    UNIX Command 
 To specify an alternate directory for RADIUS accounting.  radiusd -a  Directory
The default directory is /usr/adm/radacct .
 To use the DBM version of the users file. See "Configuring Database Caching of User Profiles" on page 4-40. This option is highly recommended.  radiusd -b 
 To specify an alternate directory for RADIUS configuration files.  radius -d  Directory
The default directory is /etc/raddb .
 To specify a password file other than /etc/passwd .  radiusd -f  Filepath
 To instruct the RADIUS server to bind to the specific address Ipaddress to listen for requests rather than binding to any address. This option is useful for multihomed servers.  radiusd -i  Ipaddress
 To specify a RADIUS logfile to use instead of syslog .  radiusd -l  Filepath
 To enable the RADIUS server to accept accounting packets from RADIUS clients that do not sign packets as required by RFC 2139. With this option, unsigned accounting records are logged and flagged with Request-Authenticator = None .  radiusd -o 
 To override the default UDP ports--or nondefault ports specified in the /etc/services  file--used by the RADIUS authentication and accounting servers.  radiusd -p  Portnumber  For backwards compatibility, the default UDP ports are 1645 for authentication, 1646 for accounting, 1650 and 1651 for proxy. Port 1812 is reserved for RADIUS authentication. Port 1813 is reserved for RADIUS accounting.  For example, if you specify radiusd -p  1812 , the following results:

  · The authentication server uses port 1812

  · The accounting server uses port 1813

  · Proxy requests and responses are handled on ports 1817 and 1818.

 To run RADIUS in single-threaded mode without spawning a child process to handle each authentication request.  radiusd -s 
 To display the version of RADIUS without starting the radiusd  daemon.  radiusd -v 
 To enable debug mode.  radiusd -x   
 To send debug output to syslog .  radiusd -x -l syslog .
