    Hi all,

    I am doing the configuration of FreeRadius Server version 2.1.1 on FC8. I plan to connect WiFi access points to freeRadius for AAA as a part of my project. I downloaded the source code and built it using

    ./configure
    make
    make install

    But, radtest gives access-reject for any username and password. Also, when running the radius daemon : radiusd i get the following error ::

    /etc/raddb/users[74]: Parse error (check) for entry Auth-Type: expecting '='
    Errors reading /etc/raddb/users
    radiusd.conf[1171]: files: Module instantiation failed.
    radiusd.conf[1970] Unknown module "files".
    radiusd.conf[1905] Failed to parse authorize section.


    Initially i was trying to integrate ldap with freeradius 1.1.7 in the first go. But, it also gave the failure to parse errors. So, i just shifted the version of freradius to 2.1.1.


    Following is the code in the users file that i have added ::

    #DEFAULT Auth-Type = System
    # Fall-Through = 1

    Auth-Type := ldap
    Auth-Type := local, User-Password == mypasswd
    Auth-Type := System

    Service-Type = Login-User

    "test" User-Password == "test"

    User-Name = "abc" User-Password = "cba"

    "swati" Cleartext-Password := "swati"
    Reply-Message = "Hello, %{User-Name}..............."


    Hope this much information is sufficient. Please do help me at the earliest.

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    The part i added in the users file is as follows ::


    #DEFAULT Auth-Type = System
    # Fall-Through = 1

    Auth-Type = ldap
    Auth-Type = local, User-Password == mypasswd
    Auth-Type = System

    Service-Type = Login-User

    "test" User-Password == "test"

    User-Name = "abc" User-Password = "cba"

    "swat" Cleartext-Password := "swat"
    Reply-Message = "Hello, %{User-Name}..............."


    But when i run radtest; either with the username and password mentioned in the file as given above or the system username and password; it does not work.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Swati

    I don't know FreeRadius, but is the colon in
    Code:
    "swat" Cleartext-Password [B][COLOR="Red"]:[/COLOR][/B]= "swat"
    correct?

    And what about the two = signs in
    Code:
    Auth-Type = local, User-Password == mypasswd
    and
    Code:
    "test" User-Password == "test"
    ?

    Freeradius SErver config & integration with LDAP !

    Swati,
    Freeradius 2.0.5 or 2.X for that matter is a great product. It works with lots of configurations out-of-the-box.

    I would suggest u to go back to the basics. Do a clean Install. enter a user in /etc/raddb/users (a plain text user) & test it with radtest. ( with this plaintext users even the freeradius 1.7 works out-of-the-box.)
    Work it from there onwards. remember baby-steps. one thing at a time.
    Good luck
