  RADIUS doesn't do that.  It does authorization or authentication.  It
doesn't do firewalling or routing.

  Read the NAS documentation to see if it's possible.  It might be, but
it would involve FreeRADIUS sending an attribute to the NAS saying "do
this".  The NAS would then be responsible for firewalling.

  Remember, RADIUS carries *suggestions*.  The RADIUS protocol isn't
involved in routing, filtering, firewalling, web serving, etc.  No user
traffic ever goes through a RADIUS server, so redirecting user traffic
in RADIUS is *impossible*.
