  Read raddb/sites-available/README

  It explains virtual servers in detail.

  Redirecting the requests involves setting Proxy-To-Realm.  So you'll
need to set up a realm && home server pool for the above home server.
Or, just use the old-style realms definition.  It will still work.


server proxy_all {
  authorize {
    update control {
      Proxy-To-Realm := "nameOfRealm"

  A seven line config.  Can't get much simpler than that.
