There are multiple authentication methods like PAP, CHAP, MS-CHAP, MS-CHAPv2, SIP Digest and all common EAP types possible.


You can install Freeradius easily via Pakfire or via console with an

IPFire offers currently no administration webinterface for Freeradius so the configuration needs to be done manually or via SSH. All configuration files can be found under/etc/raddb/ .
