Opinion about idea

Good afternoon to all,

Currently I have almost 1000 clients (enterprises) using your own MySQL database and FreeRadius instance, working very Well. (each one with their own Linux server)

Recently, some of them ask me to host the database and FreeRadius, to avoid infra-sctructure problems.

Is it possible to run just one FreeRadius Server, where it will be multiple MySQL databases, and “tell” to FreeRadius authenticate according client IP ?


Client Enterprise 1 -> NAS IP --> Then the FreeRadius will use MySQL database “client1”

Client Enterprise 2 -> NAS IP --> Then the FreeRadius will use MySQL database “client2”

Client Enterprise 3 -> NAS IP --> Then the FreeRadius will use MySQL database “client3”

In this way, every enterprise could have their own usernames, where the username “joao” from client1 is diferent than “joao” from client2.

I research a little about virtual servers and sql instances, but I don´t know if this is the correct way.

What do you guys think about it ?

We are talking about 1000 enterprises and almost 1.000.000 usernames.

  Are you using TTLS with inner PAP?  If not, then what you want is impossible.

  If blowfish doesn't work, then changing to SHA512 hashed passwords won't help.

  Understanding the problem helps here.
