In this post to the SmallWall list on September 30, 2004, Barry Mather explains how to set up MultiTech RADIUS server for use with SmallWall.
Get the software (just google radius200.exe and download from
multi-tech) Install onto you win32 machine, I have it working on both winxp sp2,
and win2k3 server.
If you installed to a default location, open c:\program files\multi-tech
Open the users file with notepad.
Remove all the users in there, I have the following line for a user:
Username Auth-Type = Local, Password = "userspassword"
The username is the 'username' in the line above is the actual username
you want to use.
The realms file can be empty.
The radius program will create a my-users file based on the users file
you just edited, leave this alone.
Dictionary file can be left as is.
The clients file needs to be edited to include the ip address of the
SmallWall, and the radius access password, my file looks like this :
That's it, v simple
No more files to edit.
It installs itself as a win32 service, just stop the service, restart
it, and it loads all the settings / users ..
Now enable the captive portal, telling it to use the ip address of the
win32 machine this radius server is installed on, and the password to
use, in this case password.
Make sure that your local win32 firewall is either not on, or is
allowing port 1812 through for radius!
