                I am useing a free radius version available with redhat 4.5
,RPM name is freeradius-1.0.1-3.RHEL4.3.i386.rpm

I  am trying to use ippool configuration  configurations i had made is

in radiusd.conf  file

 ippool main_pool {
                #  range-start,range-stop: The start and end ip
                #  addresses for the ip pool
                range-start =
                range-stop =
                #  netmask: The network mask used for the ip's
                netmask =
                #  cache-size: The gdbm cache size for the db
                #  files. Should be equal to the number of ip's
                #  available in the ip pool
                cache-size = 800
                # session-db: The main db file used to allocate ip's to
                session-db = ${raddbdir}/db.ippool
                # ip-index: Helper db index file used in multilink
                ip-index = ${raddbdir}/db.ipindex
                # override: Will this ippool override a Framed-IP-Address
already set
                override = yes
                # maximum-timeout: If not zero specifies the maximum time in
seconds an
                # entry may be active. Default: 0
                maximum-timeout = 0
accounting {


post-auth {


in users file

 steve   Auth-Type := Local, User-Password == "testing"
        Service-Type = Framed-User,
        Framed-Protocol = PPP,
        Framed-IP-Address =,
        Framed-IP-Netmask =,
        Framed-Routing = Broadcast-Listen,
        Framed-Filter-Id = "std.ppp",
        Framed-MTU = 1500,
        Framed-Compression = Van-Jacobsen-TCP-IP

DEFAULT  Pool-Name := "main_pool"


in clients file

 <nas ip>  <secret key>

and i am getting  errors when i run /usr/sbin/radiusd -A -X

 modcall: entering group post-auth for request 0
rlm_ippool: Could not find Pool-Name attribute.
  modcall[post-auth]: module "main_pool" returns noop for request 0
rlm_ippool: Could not find Pool-Name attribute.
I  am suspecting  some problem with users file  ... Can you please help  me
to find out what is missing

Thanks and regards
Jos george.
