NAME

radtest - send packets to a RADIUS server, show reply  

SYNOPSIS

radtest [-d raddb_directory] user password radius-server nas-port-number secret [ppphint] [nasname]  

DESCRIPTION

radtest is a frontend to radclient(1). It generates a list of attribute/value pairs based on the command line arguments, and feeds these into radclient. It's a fast and convenient way to test a radius server.

 

OPTIONS

-d raddb_directory
The directory that contains the RADIUS dictionary files. Defaults to /etc/raddb.

user
Username to send.

password
Password of the user.

radius-server
Hostname or IP address of the radius server. Optionally, you may specify a port by appending :port

nas-port-number
The value of the NAS-Port attribute. Is an integer between 0 and 2^31, and it really doesn't matter what you put here. 10 will do fine.

secret
The shared secret for this client.

ppphint
If you put an integer > 0 here, radtest (or actually radclient) will add the attribute Framed-Protocol = PPP to the request packet.

nasname
If present, this will be resolved to an IP address and added to the request packet as the NAS-IP-Address attribute. If you don't specify it, the local hostname of the system will be used.
