       squid_radius_auth - Squid RADIUS authentication helper


       squid_radius_auth -f configfile
       squid_radius_auth -h "server" [-p port] [-i identifier] -w secret


       This  helper allows Squid to connect to a RADIUS server to validate the
       user name and password of Basic HTTP authentication.

       -f configfile
              Specifies  the  path  to   a   configuration   file.   See   the
              CONFIGURATION section for details.

       -h server
              Alternative method of specifying the server to connect to

       -p port
              Specify  another server port where the RADIUS server listens for
              requests if different from the default  RADIUS  port.   Normally
              not specified.

       -i identifier
              Unique  identifier  identifying  this  Squid proxy to the RADIUS
              server.  If not specified the IP address is used as to  identify
              the proxy.

       -w secret
              Alternative  method  of  specifying the shared secret. Using the
              configuration file is generally more secure and recommended.

       -t timeout
              RADIUS request timeout. Default 10 seconds.


       The configuration specifies how the helper  connects  to  RADIUS.   The
       file contains a list of directives (one per line). Lines beginning with
       a # is ignored.

       server radiusserver
              specifies the name or address of the RADIUS  server  to  connect

       secret somesecretstring
              specifies the shared RADIUS secret.

       identifier nameofserver
              specifies what the proxy should identify itsels as to the RADIUS
              server.  This directive is optional.

       port portnumber
              Specifies the port number  or  service  name  where  the  helper
              should connect.
