Hi list,

I wrote a simple module to interface freeradius with a webserver via
xmlrpc. This is an excerpt from the readme:

"Have you ever wanted to trigger an action real time when the user
logs in or logs off in freeradius?
This module born to solve this problem in a message passing fashion
using the xmlrpc tecnology
really common to web application.

With this module you can write a custom application that exposes an
xmlrpc method as an entry point
for radius accounting packets. This way you can trigger an event on
your webservice at the same
time freeradius processes accounting packets. ..."

I think this module could be usefull and I wrote it just for fun and profit!

The module is not heavily tested in production, but it is in
production from a few days on a low traffic machine, just to test and
stress it.

I will be really gratefull to anyone who wants to use it or contribute
to it, hoping that it will be added to freeradius in a near future!

You can find the sources on github:
