RADIUS server

The RADIUS Server app provides a hook into your ClearOS accounts system for RADIUS clients. This app can be used to allow external devices to authenticate against ClearOS:

  • Wireless access points
  • NAS devices
  • 3rd party appliances
  • Any other RADIUS-ready system


If your system does not have this app available, you can install it via the Marketplace.

You can find this feature in the menu system at the following location:

Network|Infrastructure|RADIUS Server


After installing the RADIUS server, you can add client access settings. When we talk of the client we are talking about a remote system that uses the RADIUS server. For instance, if you are configuring RADIUS for wireless access, the wireless access point is the RADIUS client, not your workstation that uses the wireless.


Every device on your system that uses RADIUS should have client settings configured in ClearOS. The following describes each parameter in detail.

IP Address

This is the host IP address or hostname of the remote system, for example your wireless access point.


The nickname is just a simple word to describe the client configuration, for example wireless_ap.


This is the shared secret between the server and the client. For security reasons, you should not use the same password as you do for other administrative accounts (mysql, root, etc).
