TekRadius – A Windows Radius Server
TekRadius is a Windows radius server built on the .net platform. It natively supports IETF/Cisco/Mikrotik which is nifty. I know the first thing that pops into mind is why wouldn’t you just use the Windows radius server (IAS). To this I say because IAS requires you to create windows users to authenticate with the server. What I’m using this for is to integrate radius into standalone management systems.
If you have a hotel system, library system or other, you can use TekRadius to easily integrate those users into your Hotspot authentication system.
I say easily because they have a nice little GUI that you can manually enter information into, but they also have an easy to use CLI interface.
All we need is a little scripting to take the existing management system’s users and convert them over to TekRadius.
The only thing that seems like it should be there is the ability to pull a user list from the CLI. You have to look via the GUI to get a complete list of users. If you wanted to do some programmatic magic, you could work around this by just keeping a list of the users or perhaps hitting the SQlite DB directly.
If anyone has some specific needs for some conversion scripting, let me know, as I would be happy to integrate a solution for you 😉
