Using FreeRadius package



  • Hi guys, congratulations for the new Beta1 release!

    I'm doing some tests with the freeradius package, but I cant get info on how to configure it in order to authenticate with captive portal.

    I was able to start the freeradius server, it's running now, and it's configured in the captive portal page to process authentications requests, but the users still browse the internet without getting the logon page.

    Is anybody get this working right? I was looking at the m0n0 docs, with no luck… I'll apreciate some help here!

    Thanks in advance to all you people, and have a happy new year!



  • Isn't that package marked as broken?



  • Yes, it is, but since the squid package also is reported as Broken… I decided to give it a try  ;)

    Anyway, I just want to know if someone else is using it, and which methods exist to check that it is working, thats all.

    Well I'll keep working on it to see if I succeed  :) and keep the good work team!



  • here is what i dit to get freeradius working on pfsense beta 1 iso

    login  on the consul or by ssh on the shell
    give these comands

    
    cd /usr/local/etc/raddb
    ls *.sample
    
    

    you see now a list of files witch had to bechanched to te same name without the .sample

    
    mv acct_users.sample acct_users
    mv clients.conf.sample clients.conf
    
    

    do this for all the files
    now the last step

    
    ee radiusd.conf
    
    

    look for

    
    pidfile =
    
    

    chance it to

    
    pidfile = /var/run/radiusd.pid
    
    

    press Ctrl and c
    type in exit
    now exit agian
    when you reboot pfsense
    you will see freeradius is now started
    and can be used
