This is radsecproxy 1.4.1 from June 11 2010.
-radsecproxy is a generic RADIUS proxy that can support various
-RADIUS clients over UDP or TLS (RadSec).
+radsecproxy is a generic RADIUS proxy that can support various RADIUS

It should build on most Linux and BSD platforms by simply typing
-"make". You may also try to use autoconf. It is possible to
-specify which RADIUS transport the build should support. With
-just doing "make" one will support only UDP and TLS. See the
-Makefile for how to change this. With autoconf (configure) there
-will normally be support for all transport. You can use the
-configure options --enable-udp, --enable-tcp, --enable-tls and
---enable-dtls where each of them may be set to yes or no to
-enable or disable them.
-To use it you need to create a config file which normally is
-called "/etc/radsecproxy.conf". You can also specify the location
-with the "-c" command line option (see below). For further

"-p" (pretend) makes the proxy go through the configuration files as

-work. This is useful for validating config files.
-Thanks to Stefan Winter and Andreas Solberg for talking me into
-doing this, and the funding from GEANT2. Stefan as well as Kolbjørn
-Barmen, Ralf Paffrath and Maja Wolniewicz have helped with early
-testing of the code.
-Thanks for contributing code goes to Arne Schwabe, Maja Wolniewicz,
-Simon Leinen and Stefan Winter.
-All of the above plus Milan Sova have provided good feedback on
-several implementation choices. Finally thanks to Hans Zandbelt
-for providing the autoconf stuff. I may have forgotten someone,
-let me know if you feel left out.
