That question would be better addressed to pfSense support/discussion
list. radius does not really care what the end usage is, it simply
provides Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA).

Here's a similar example: you can limit which users are allowed to use
wireless network on your office by listing the users and their
respective password on a radius server. But to get the actual
limitation to work, you need to configure your wireless access point
to "ask" radius whether a particular user/password combination is
allowed. Does this make sense so far?
