Yet Another Radius Daemon

Yet Another Radius Daemon (YARDRADIUS) is a free RADIUS RFC-compliant daemon for accounting and authorization. It is derived from the original Lucent (formerly Livingston Enterprise Inc.) RADIUS daemon release 2.1. It adds a number of useful features to the Lucent daemon, such as use of GNU autoconf/automake, control of simultaneous logins, the ability to control user access by username, groupname, GECOS field, or shell, support for Ascend, Cisco, and USR boxes in VSA mode, and much more. It also supports all features of the most recent LE daemon, and it is compatible with the original Lucent configuration files.
