i am trying to setup freeradius in our quite custom environment. I
already managed to get the authentication work with freeradius but not
the integration in our environment.

Is there a way to look into a radius request to see what information is
provided? And how to use it in the SQL template or configuration?

The authentication from the cisco aironet access points should be done
in two ways. The first one is mac authentication and the other is leap
authentication (User, Domain, Password).

We have stored the information in a sql database, but in different

One table contains the mac-addresses (among other information about the
hardware). The mac-address authentication should be done against this

Another table contains user information like Domain, Username and
Password and much of other information. The passwords are encrypted
(unix password crypt).

How do i manage to authenticate theses two ways with one radius server?
How do i manage it, to integrate freeradius in this database

Any help is appreciated. Whould be also nice, if you could point out
some interesting and not too long documentation on theses special

Thx in advance,
