Install FreeRadius With Web Based Management Daloradius On CentOS/RHEL

FreeRADIUS is the most popular open source RADIUS server and the most widely deployed RADIUS server in the world. It supports all common authentication protocols, and the server comes with a PHP-based web user administration tool called dialup admin . It is the basis for many commercial RADIUS products and services, such as embedded systems, RADIUS appliances that support Network Access Control, and WiMAX. It supplies the AAA needs of many Fortune-500 companies, telcos, and Tier 1 ISPs. It is also widely used in the academic community, including eduroam. The server is fast, feature-rich, modular, and scalable. The currently shipping stable version is 2.2.0.

Install FreeRadius with Web Based Management Daloradius on CentOS/RHEL

On CentOS/RHEL 5

# yum install freeradius2 freeradius2-mysql freeradius2-utils mysql-server mysql php-mysql php

On CentOS/RHEL 6

# yum install freeradius freeradius-mysql freeradius-utils mysql-server mysql php-mysql php

Start the MySQL instance

# chkconfig mysqld on
# /etc/init.d/mysqld start

Next we need to create the radius database, so execute

# mysql -uroot -p

Next create the database and grant all privileges to user radius

mysql> CREATE DATABASE radius;
mysql> GRANT ALL ON radius.* TO [email protected] IDENTIFIED BY "[email protected]";
mysql> flush privileges;
mysql> exit

Now we need to build the schema for radius database

# mysql -uradius -p radius < /etc/raddb/sql/mysql/schema.sql

Now edit the sql.conf file and populate the database credentials.

# vi /etc/raddb/sql.conf

Enter your mysql database details you just created

# Connection info:
server = "localhost"
port = 3306
login = "radius"
password = "[email protected]"
# Database table configuration for everything except Oracle
radius_db = "radius"

Next open /etc/raddb/radiusd.conf

# vi /etc/raddb/radiusd.conf

Uncomment Line 700 to include sql.conf

$INCLUDE sql.conf

Next edit /etc/raddb/sites-available/default and uncomment the line 177 containing ‘sql’ under the authorize {} section and line 406 ‘sql’ under the accounting {} section, also uncomment ‘sql’ under session {} line 454.

# vi /etc/raddb/sites-available/default

Now, edit /etc/raddb/sites-available/inner-tunnel and uncomment the line 131 and line 255 containing ‘sql’ under authorize {} and under session {}.

# vi /etc/raddb/sites-available/inner-tunnel

Open up /etc/raddb/clients.conf

# vi /etc/raddb/clients.conf

To add NAS clients that will use RADIUS server for AAA you have to add the following to the clients.conf file. Append a block such as this, replace 192.168.209.1 with the ip address of your NAS client that will use FreeRADIUS for AAA.

client 192.168.209.1 {
secret = 91982650d89
nastype = other
}

Restart FreeRADIUS for the new configuration to take effect.

# service radiusd restart

If you encounter any problems you can run FreeRADIUS in debug mode to find any authentication issues. To run FreeRADIUS in debug mode execute

# radiusd -X

Radius use MySQL to store usernames and passwords. To manage radius server daloradius is a good choice. To install daloradius

# wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/daloradius/files/latest/download?source=files
# tar zxvf daloradius-0.9-9.tar.gz
# mysql -uradius -p radius < daloradius-0.9-9/contrib/db/fr2-mysql-daloradius-and-freeradius.sql

Next open the daloradius.conf.php

# vi daloradius-0.9-9/library/daloradius.conf.php

Add the database username, password and db name.

• $configValues['DALORADIUS_VERSION'] = '0.9-9';
• $configValues['FREERADIUS_VERSION'] = '2';
• $configValues['CONFIG_DB_ENGINE'] = 'mysql';
• $configValues['CONFIG_DB_HOST'] = 'localhost';
• $configValues['CONFIG_DB_USER'] = 'radius';
• $configValues['CONFIG_DB_PASS'] = '[email protected]';
• $configValues['CONFIG_DB_NAME'] = 'radius';

Move daloradius to the web root directory

# mv daloradius-0.9-9 /var/www/html/daloradius

Point your browser to http://ip-address-or-hostname/daloradius
Login using
Username administrator
Password
radius
You can add new groups and users to the database and manage the radius server.
