Hi There

I am trying to setup freeradius using mysql and ippools.
Basically i want to use mysql to auth the incoming request and and use
ippool to assign an adress to that request. Firstly is that possible?
I have setup the mysql DB correctly with the radcheck table
specifiying the Pool-Name ( in my case im testing with the main_pool
as configured in the radiusd.conf.
My second probelm is that if i start up radiusd in debug mode it shows
the following error?

Module: Loaded IPPOOL
 ippool: session-db = "/home/radius/db.ippool"
 ippool: ip-index = "/home/radius/db.ipindex"
 ippool: range-start = IP address []
 ippool: range-stop = IP address []
 ippool: netmask = IP address []
 ippool: cache-size = 800
 ippool: override = yes
 ippool: maximum-timeout = 0
rlm_ippool: Failed to open file /home/radius/db.ippool: Permission denied
radiusd.conf[1467]: main_pool: Module instantiation failed.

Do i need to create the db files first? If so how is this done?
I know this may be arb questions but this is my first time using freeradius :)
