Std PPPoE work, but PPPoE with FreeRadius doesn't

  • Hi, first, THANKS a MILLION for such a great support site for such a great product.

    Right, its 1.0-RELEASE, with JUST FreeRadius also installed.
    Normal PPPoE connections work, but when I change to use the Radius Server, it doesnt connect.
    I suspect its a single setting, but what am I missing?

    PLEASE somebody - where is my mistake !!!

  • set freeradius up to use the lan interface
    set a client up on freeradius with te lan interface ip as clientip
    and a secrect

    on the pppoe server setup page use the lan interface ipadress as radius server ip
    and the freeradius client secret

  • Hi Jeroen

    thanks for the reply, I had tried this previously, but what I get is the following … It "finds" a server, and goes the the "Verifying Username and Password" box, then times out with a 718 error: The remote computer did not respond in a timely manner.

    any other suggestions ?


  • dit you add the user and password you want to use for youre pc to the freeradius user tab ?

  • yes I did, but I have now noticed that the FreeRadius service is NOT started  :'(

    Also, if I click on Start, the page reloads, saying started, but the service stays with the STOPPED icon and it still does not work.

    I think I need to read more help pages !!!

  • can you log in to the box via consule or ssh
    and go to the shell (8)


    radiusd -X

    watt error gives freeradius now ?

  • same issues here, here is the output:

  • @_Adik_:
