I'm not exactly sure. How does a RADIUS server work over the Internet? I'm
not connecting the radius clients onto the same LAN. If a radius request
comes in from the internet, would the server send responses to the Internet
IP that it received it from (which I think would work for my case) or would
it send to the radius client IP?
Here's what I'm trying to do:
Host a radius server on the Internet...for PEAP 802.1X (WPA-enterprise).
Each AP at the different offices would be set with the Internet IP address
of where the radius server is running, along with a shared secret. There
would likely be APs set to the same IP address, that's why I'm asking about

I know it traditionally doesn't, just checking to see what people think and
if I might find a way to do what I want to do.
What got me thinking something like this could work is when using a
different server, I thought I could modify the SQL select statement that's
used to find the shared secret. For example, the default is "select
SharedSecret from NASES where ClientIPAddress='$c'" I thought I could just
add the following to the end "and where Domain=(function that takes the
domain from the username...after the @) I found that server can't register
the username attribute during the select statement...so it all didn't work.
Opps. I'm using v1.1.7 because at the moment I'm using FreeRadius.net on
Thanks for your help guys - Eric
