FreeRADIUS is the premiere open source RADIUS server. Based on current
statistics, there are over 50,000 deployments of the software. These
deployments include small sites with 10 users, large-scale enterprises with
tens of thousands of users, and carrier-class deployments with over 10 million
users. In total, the sites that we know are using FreeRADIUS support nearly
100 million users. The only other servers that come close in terms of market
share and/or number of sites are ACS and IAS.

The server scales easily from embedded systems with small amounts of memory to
systems with millions of users. It is fast, flexible, configurable, and
supports more authentication protocols than most commercial servers. It
includes support for SQL, LDAP, RADIUS Proxying, failover, load balancing, and
nearly 100 vendor dictionary files. It can perform authentications via the
EAP-SIM, and Digest authentication protocols. It has reached a stable 1.1
version, with incremental improvements added in each release.

The server is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL), which means
that it is free to download and install.

    Affects: users of net/freeradius
    Author: David Wood <>
      FreeRADIUS 2.0 is now available as the net/freeradius2 port. All FreeRADIUS
      users are advised to consider upgrading to 2.0. It is the FreeRADIUS team's
      intention to put the 1.x server into 'maintenance' mode with just critical
      bug fixes.[1] 2.0 has many improvements including numerous bug fixes that
      were too difficult for the 1.x server, as well as many new features.
      Before uninstalling 1.x, it is recommended that you backup your
      configuration, which is typically in /usr/local/etc/raddb, then move it
      out of the way. It is also worth backing up the default configuration,
      which is typically in /usr/local/share/examples/freeradius/raddb.
      1.x configurations should work with the 2.0 server [2]. However the port
      automatically upgrades any unedited files in the configuration when you
      install a new version of FreeRADIUS. Installing 2.0 with the residue of a
      1.x configuration in the default location will result in a mixed 1.x and
      2.0 configuration that may not work.
      The recommended approach is to diff your 1.x configuration against the
      default 1.x configuration, then make corresponding changes to a copy
      of the default 2.0 configuration. If you moved your 1.x configuration out
      of the way before upgrading, you will have a 2.0 configuration ready to
      edit in the default location. It is worth reading man 5 unlang for details
      of the new FreeRADIUS 'un-language' before starting.
      Alternatively, you can move your 1.x configuration to another location,
      such as /usr/local/etc/raddb_v1, then edit /etc/rc.conf to point the rc.d
      script to that location. For example:
    	radiusd_flags="-d /usr/local/etc/raddb_v1"
      I cannot guarantee that all 1.x configurations will work with the 2.0
      server, and I only recommend using a 1.x configuration as an interim
