PPTP new secondary radius – will this work?



  • I was wondering…now that PPTP has secondary radius is there a way I can make the primary Radius one of my windows server boxes and then the secondary make it the local pfsense radius server?

    so if a windows box goes down I can still remote in as a fail-safe using the pfsense local users in pptp section?

    Install the FreeRADIUS package, add your user in there, then it can work.

    By default the system doesn't have a radius server, the users are authenticated locally without Radius. If you want to use it like a Radius server you'll have to add in FreeRadius.



  • thanks for the response!

    I will give it try as I get a chance
