Dear All :
How to running FreeRadius on embedded pfSense 1.2.3 RC3??
The FreeRadius package is installed, But service is not running. The radius.log is shown below:
Wed Oct 28 00:11:50 2009 : Info: Using deprecated naslist file. Support for this will go away soon.
Wed Oct 28 00:11:50 2009 : Info: rlm_exec: Wait=yes but no output defined. Did you mean output=none?
Wed Oct 28 00:11:50 2009 : Error: rlm_counter: Failed to open file /usr/local/etc/raddb/db.daily: Read-only file system
Wed Oct 28 00:11:50 2009 : Error: radiusd.conf: daily: Module instantiation failed.
Thanks for your help !!

i had a similar problem with snort and i think a lot of the package issues are related to the embedded/nanobsd being read only.
whatever admin(thanks jimp) did, (something to do with read/write) it fixed it for me. maybe the same has to be done with this package?
FreeRADIUS may need to be excluded from embedded. I have been trying to track down a way to make it happy but I think it will end up needing constant write access to really work properly, not to mention it may need special handling to backup and restore its data since /var/ is a memory disk on embedded.
I haven't had any more time to spend working on that one, since it will require a lot more than a few simple read/write calls like the other packages.

Is it be possible to have the core running off of flash and have a hard drive to store options that require rw? This would allow for the core to always be on a DOM and have some kind of script to setup a drive for the RW things like http caching and radius logging ect..
It might be possible in the future, but it is not something there is support for at the moment. Not in the gui anyhow.
I doubt something like that would even make 2.0 at this point since it is in a feature freeze, but perhaps sometime later.
