The RADIUS RemoteAuthentication Dial-In User Service is a network protocol that centrally provides authentication, authorisation and management of user accounts for access to a wired or wireless network.
When the client makes the connection with the WISPControl RADIUS, information is sent which is generally a user name and password. This information is transferred to a Network Access Server (NAS) device on the PPPprotocol, which redirects the request to the RADIUS server on the PPP protocol. The RADIUS server checks that the information is correct using authentication schemes such as PAP, CHAP or EAP. . If accepted, the WISPControl RADIUS server will authorise access and assign network resources such as an IP address, and other parameters such as L2TP, etc.
One of the most important features of the RADIUS protocol is its ability to handle sessions, notifying the user when a connection begins and ends, so that the user can determine his or her consumption and bill accordingly; the data can be used for statistical purposes.
It allows you to create and manage clients for RADIUS, as well as display and manage records.
Replica of RADIUS
The RADIUS replication service synchronizes all local RADIUS information on a second RADIUS server. If the local RADIUS server goes down, all network users can authenticate themselves to the replication server.
