thanks for the answer... I want to obtain from the web service the users,
but I need to use mysql with freeradius because I'm using daloradius. So I
think if the web service authenticate with a perl client in this script add
the user to mysql database and after freeradius connect to mysql to do
auth... is possible to use the perl and mysql in authorization section? in
the perl script i want to connect to my web service and if the user exists
add in mysql... after the sql module do athorization, accounting, etc
