RADIUS and Local Authentication



  • I've got RADIUS working with CA to another box, I also want to use local accounts for guest users (to have expatriation dates and such) I have searched but don't seem to find a solution. Anyone have an idea?

    I don't think there is a way to use both in a single portal instance.

    Though your RADIUS software may have a way to expire accounts. If nothing else, perhaps a cron job can shut them off (or delete them) in its database based on the timestamp of the account.

    RADIUS is a lot more flexible than the local account database for most things.

    You can use database behind radius and then re-authenticate user in some period predefined on CP. You will need to write some business logic for that to work. I think that there is some example in free-radius (application dial-up_admin) how to do that.
