i have a question about the free radius package. is only the package broken or freeradius complete.
can i run a freeradius on a second maschine ? Is there an other linux radius version compatible?(openradius)
I can't speak to the status of the package but the RADIUS auth should work fine with an external RADIUS server (except for the 16 character password limit). I use RADIATOR personally but it's a payware perl based solution. It should work fine with any compliant RADIUS server.
