Hi Alan,

Thanks for the quick reply.

So, pam module can't be used. 

How can I set it up in Radius using rlm_password?

  Documentation is good.  Following the documentation is great.

  For the pam_radius_auth module?  You can't.

  For FreeRADIUS, you can use rlm_passwd to map a key to another value.
