Hello Alan,

I have this query,

I have downloaded the server program for FreeRADIUS v3.0.10 .Would you like to share the purpose of the file below:

available under /src/main/ 

You mentioned in one of the mail saying that RADIUS server has to contain client side program too in or der to serve as a client to 0the RADIUS remote servers. Is that means that the client side files we are looking for we can get all through RADIUS server code/package?

the client is currently RADIUS over UDP - so you'll need to configure it to use TCP/TLS and set the correct certificate details (CA etc etc - its a TLS client).

radsecproxy is a simple program that will take UDP and turn it into TCP/TLS

FreeRADIUS contains the client side code - it has to as it is also a client of remote RADSEC servers.....
