clients.conf — FreeRADIUS client configuration


The clients.conf file contains definitions of RADIUS clients.

The information in this file overrides any information provided in the deprecated clients and naslist files.

The file format is the same as that used for radiusd.conf. See radiusd.conf(5) for more details.

Each RADIUS client entry has the following basic form:

client <short-name> {
       <attribute> = <value>

Clients have many configuration parameters. Most are documented in the file itself as comments. This page documents only the format of the file. Please read the clients.conf file itself for more information.

The old-style format from 1.x is still accepted by the server, but that form is deprecated.
