  Nice!  I never understood GNU radius.  It seemed to be a one-person project to get the *GNU* stamp on a RADIUS server.

  i.e. the GNU people don't like GPL code.  They like code that THEY own.  <sigh>

  Well... you need to read the FreeRADIUS documentation and see how things relate.

  FreeRADIUS has a "hints" file.  it has a "users" file.  It has a "clients" file in clients.conf.  It has realms defined in proxy.conf.

  We don't have a detailed "howto" guide on converting from GNU RADIUS to FreeRADIUS.  GNU RADIUS was used by only a small number of people, and the project has been dead for over 10 years.

  I suggest going through the FreeRADIUS documents, and setting things up slowly.  The configuration files are well documented.  Just read them, and fill things in.

  I don't know what that is, so I don't know.
