The directory that contains the RADIUS dictionary files. Defaults to
File to read the attribute/value pairs from. If this is not specified,
they are read from stdin.
The source IP address to use for sending radius packets.
The hostname or IP address of the remote server. Optionally a UDP port
can be specified. If no UDP port is specified, it is looked up in
/etc/services. The service name looked for is radacct for
accounting packets, and radius for all other requests. If a
service is not found in /etc/services, 1646 and 1645 are used
Use auth to send an authentication packet, or acct to send
an accounting packet. Instead of auth or acct, you can
also use a decimal code here. For example, code 12 is Status-Server.
The shared secret for this client. Needs to be defined on the radius
server side too, for the IP address you are sending the radius packets
A sample session that queries the remote server for Status-Server (not all servers support this, but Cistron Radius does since version 1.6.5):
$ echo "User-Name = fnord" | radclient 192.168.1.42 12 s3cr3t Sending request to server 192.168.1.42, port 1645. radrecv: Packet from host 192.168.1.42 code=2, id=140, length=54 Reply-Message = "Cistron Radius up 21 days, 02:05"
