CP + Radius : Password Problem

  • Hi,

    today I setup pfsense 1.2-beta (June 02) without any problems; i activated the captive portal and it works, too. Then I tried to do the authentication process via RADIUS. I installed Freeradius und MySQL on another computer. With radtest it seems all ok.
    When I try to log in the captive portal, the Radius-Server rejects the request. This is the output of my radius server:

    rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host, id=236, length=130
            NAS-IP-Address =
            NAS-Identifier = "pfSense.local"
            User-Name = "manfred"
            User-Password = "\3141\246m\375\365\347t6\027\274<\316\276"
            Service-Type = Login-User
            NAS-Port-Type = Ethernet
            NAS-Port = 0
            Framed-IP-Address =
            Called-Station-Id = "00:0c:29:9a:51:2d"
            Calling-Station-Id = "00:0c:29:33:47:e3"
      Processing the authorize section of radiusd.conf
    …....and so on.

    I think the problem is the User-Password, it seems to be compressed or garbage. Has anyone an idea what to do?
    Thanks in advance


  • If you have encryption setup, I would guess it isn't decrypting right, that is where I would start.
