Re: Pam and radius

I have a old patch to let pppd auth through radius (I'm currently
using it). The question could be more on how to set up the radius server 
in a PAM way to do authentication and accounting. I think if I had read 
right on Cristian homepage that radius-pam can do that in the same 
machine, is that ok?

what have I to upgrade (in what order) to make it work?
need some pam.conf configuration? only rpm'ing the stuff?

<g> I know that. I have done a bit hacking on the older (public?)
version of radius from livingston. Please note that
merit radius is very difficult code to work on :~(

in other way I plan to buy portmasters to remote POPs but now
I'm planing the users migration to autoppp and radius and I
wish to do it in the right way (planning for future!)

In most countries selling harmful things like drugs is punishable.
Then howcome people can sell Micro$oft software and go unpunished?
