I just joined the list recently, in hopes to get some help in configuring LDAP on my FreeRADIUS server. I have found a lot of documentation for FreeRADIUS v2, dating from 2011 and 2014, etc. But no clear step-by-step to enable LDAP for v3. My server is version 3.0.15. I have worked through the initial setup on the http://wiki.freeradius.org/guide/Getting-Started <http://wiki.freeradius.org/guide/Getting-Started> and was able to connect with “Access-Accept”. But now I want to connect an LDAP server (specifically, a VLDAP server from OneLogin). I have all their docs, and have all the base DN and Bind DN info. But the documentation at http://wiki.freeradius.org/modules/Rlm_ldap <http://wiki.freeradius.org/modules/Rlm_ldap> seem to “start in the middle” for me. It says you "can"…
"To enable LDAP in your FreeRADIUS server, you can:
• instantiate an ldap module - which sets up the server name, the base DN, etc
• authenticate using an ldap module instance - which makes the FreeRADIUS server verify the user's identity in the LDAP directory, usually involving some form of checking the validity of the password
• authorize using an ldap module instance - which makes the FreeRADIUS server verify the user's level of authorization in the LDAP directory, usually involving verifying group membership or similar"
… but I don’t have enough experience to evaluate those options, or know how to do any of them. So I am looking for a simple “how to enable LDAP on FreeRADIUS 3” that I can follow to get things working, and learn from there. Thank you.
