ABSTRACT

The Net::Radius::Client package implements a single call, high-level RADIUS client.

DESCRIPTION

The query routine tries to deliver request to RADIUS server(s) and returns its response whenever successful.

RADIUS servers to query are represented as a hash carrying network-scope details. See SYNOPSIS for more information.

RADIUS attribute-value pairs for both request and response take shape of a two-dimentional hash-ref first indexed by attribute vendor ID (0 for IETF) and then by attribute name (as econfigured in the "dictionary"). Since RADIUS protocol allows for multiple attributes of the same type in packet, value(s) of each attribute are kept in a list. See SYNOPSIS for guidance.

The load routine loads up RADIUS dictionary file, as specified by its first parameter, and should be called once on startup.
