When i say it doesnt do Accounting, I mean it in the sense, that he's
looking for a solution that does everything(billing, etc)
Yes Free Radius will work fine, as I am using it, but without the means
for a billing backend, he wont be able to do what he wants. Maybe I am
wrong, but it sounds like he wants a turn key solution for a hotspot
If all he wants is the RADIUS function, freeradius rocks and is simple.
I have had a lot of people ask me how to log into RADIUS and see who's
connected. This doesnt make sense to me as RADIUS isnt a management

server asks a yes or no question( ex: m0n0 asks radius if "1" is
allowed. RADIUS checks "1" in DB and acknoledges to m0n0 if "yes" or "no"
You know what I am saying, I didnt have to explain that I guess. My
apologies. Just a frustration with peoples misconseption of RADIUS as a
