  FreeRADIUS doesn't support Diameter, and won't ever support Diameter.
 Diameter is a huge, complex protocol that has all sorts of wild

  See OpenDiameter for an implementation of the *protocol*.  But it
doesn't build (last I checked) on newer systems, and it doesn't include
a server that does anything.  That is, FreeRADIUS includes SQL, LDAP,
etc. plugins, and OpenDiameter has none of that.
