RADTEST(1)                     FreeRADIUS Daemon                    RADTEST(1)




NAME

       radtest - send packets to a RADIUS server, show reply


SYNOPSIS

       radtest  [-d raddb_directory] user password radius-server nas-port-num-
       ber secret [ppphint] [nasname]


DESCRIPTION

       radtest  is  a  frontend  to  radclient(1).  It  generates  a  list  of
       attribute/value  pairs  based  on the command line arguments, and feeds
       these into radclient. It’s a fast and convenient way to test  a  radius
       server.



OPTIONS

       -d raddb_directory
              The   directory  that  contains  the  RADIUS  dictionary  files.
              Defaults to /etc/raddb.


       user   Username to send.


       password
              Password of the user.


       radius-server
              Hostname or IP address of the radius server. Optionally, you may
              specify a port by appending :port


       nas-port-number
              The value of the NAS-Port attribute. Is an integer between 0 and
              2^31, and it really doesn’t matter what you put here. 10 will do
              fine.


       secret The shared secret for this client.


       ppphint
              If  you put an integer > 0 here, radtest (or actually radclient)
              will add the attribute Framed-Protocol  =  PPP  to  the  request
              packet.


       nasname
              If  present, this will be resolved to an IP address and added to
              the request packet as the NAS-IP-Address attribute. If you don’t
              specify it, the local hostname of the system will be used.
