User Change Password Free Radius Captitive Portal



  • Hi,

    I am running CP with a local user DB for a while, now I want to set up a free radius server. My question is whether its possible that the user can change his password from the CP.
    Thanks in advance!

    With freeradius there isn't any easy way to do or allow that. The user must have access to freeradius server or to the LDAP/MySQL database to which freeradius is connected to.

    If you choose the local User Manager in pfsense - I am not 100% sure but perhaps you can set privileges for these users and just allow them to enter the pfsense webGUI to change their password. But then you need to allow them access to pfsense. I would not do that.



  • Danke Nachtfalke!
    I could do a SQL Update with php on the mysql table which freeradius uses. But this also seems not a very good thing to do.

    Why not? Seems like that would be a fine thing to do as long as it's done in a secure fashion.

    If you could make sure that a user only can change its own credentials this should be fine. But you must avoid that the user can change credentials of other users of course ;-)



  • I am using DMA Softlabs Radius Manager software along with my RADIUS server.  This software has a User Control Panel which you can setup and the user can login, see their account details and change things like their personal details and password. I suggest you take a look at this.
