Radius server integrataion

Post by mpankov » Fri Feb 14, 2014 11:02 am

Hi,

I saw there were other posts on the topic but couldn't really understand what the current status of the radius integration is.
I cannot configure the radius authentication to work with the latest version. In addition on the manager the options are greyed out and adding an asterisk (*) user gives an error that the option is not supported. I see here http://www.softether.org/3-spec/Current_Limitations the feature is missing, however it says there this is for v 1.0. On the other hand I see in the manual screenshots and explanation how to configure it http://www.softether.org/4-docs/1-manua ... y_Features. So is it currently possible or not to have radius authentication? If it is not enabled in the binaries is it present in the source? Can I reconfigure the source to enable and use it? If yes is there any documentation about it?

Thanks.

The commercial version has Radius. The manual has detailed Radius instructions. The open source version doesn't support Radius.

It isn't too hard to write Radius support into the open source version as the code is pretty clean and reasonably easy to follow. The stubs are sort of there in the source and you can see where the code has been removed. It took me about a week to do it.

We are planning to add the Radius support on the next open-source build.

You can set up any Radius-LDAP translater.

Konichi-wa, Dnobori-san,

Is there any ETA on when the next open source build will be released?

Thank you for waiting!
We added the following five advanced functions into SoftEther VPN Server (experimental):
- RADIUS / NT Domain user authentication function
- RSA certificate user authentication function
- Deep-inspect packet logging function
- Source IP address control list function
- syslog transfer function

dnobori, thanks for radius integration.

I have some questions:
1. Why my radius does not log client connections ?
2. Can I assign IP address via "Framed-IP-Address" from radius? So I want to avoid using DHCP server.

Sorry, I don't know about the behavior of your RADIUS server.

"Framed-IP-Address" is not supported on the current version of SoftEther VPN Server. Please contribute your code to https://github.com/SoftEtherVPN/SoftEtherVPN/.

dnobori, Unfortunately I'm not a programmer, can someone help me with codding radius auth to get IP address, netmask and route from Radius ?

+1 no accounting and no IP address allocation like other VPN servers has.

I'm ready to pay a programmer to add this functionality to SoftEther.

Hi,

Is there any plans to have radius accounting support as without this I might as well look for another project or stay with OpenVPN which has a working radius plugin which supports both authentication as well as accounting.

Just need an idea of time-frame that's all as the lack of progress / response on the thread is a little worrying.

Thx
Nev

Would be nice to get a timeline from the developers.

As you can see no reply for 7 Months, so maybe the developers on not interested in providing this support due to their lack of response.

It would at least be good to know if this is on their roadmap and when this is anticipated, so we can stop wasting our time holding out for this functionality that everyone using Radius clearly would like.

Come on SoftEther, put us out of our misery.
