-
-This module is intended to provide the session service for users
-authenticated with a RADIUS server. At the present stage, the only
-option supported is the use of the RADIUS server as an <em/accounting/
-server.
-
-<p>
-(There are few things which needs to be cleared out first in
-the PAM project until one will be able to use this module and expect
-it to magically start pppd in response to a RADIUS server command to
-use PPP for this user, or to initiate a telnet connection to another
-host, or to hang and call back the user using parameters provided in
-the RADIUS server response. Most of these things are better suited for
-the radius login application. I hope to make available Real Soon (tm)
-patches for the login apps to make it work this way.)
-
-<p>
-When opening a session, this module sends an ``Accounting-Start''
-message to the RADIUS server, which will log/update/whatever a
-database for this user. On close, an ``Accounting-Stop'' message is
-sent to the RADIUS server.
-
-<p>
-This module has no other prerequisites for making it work. One can
-install a RADIUS server just for fun and use it as a centralized
-accounting server and forget about wtmp/last/sac etc. .
-
-<tag><bf>Examples/suggested usage:</bf></tag>
-
-For the services that need this module (<em/login/ for example) put
-the following line in <tt>/etc/pam.conf</tt> as the last line for that
-service (usually after the pam_unix session line):
-<tscreen>
-<verb>
-login session required pam_radius.so
-</verb>
-</tscreen>
-Replace <tt/login/ for each service you are using this module.
-
-<p>
-This module make extensive use of the API provided in libpwdb
-0.54preB or later. By default, it will read the radius server
-configuration (hostname and secret) from <tt>/etc/raddb/server</tt>.
-This is a default compiled into libpwdb, and curently there is no way to
-modify this default without recompiling libpwdb. I am working on
-extending the radius support from libpwdb to provide a possibility
-to make this runtime-configurable.
-
-Also please note that libpwdb will require also the RADIUS
-dictionary to be present (<tt>/etc/raddb/dictionary</tt>).
