       radclient  [-d  raddb_directory]  [-f file] [-i source_ip]
       [-xy] server {acct|auth} secret


       radclient is a radius client program. It  can  send  arbi­
       trary  radius  packets  to a radius server, then shows the
       reply. It can be used to test changes you made in the con­
       figuration of the radius server, or it can be used to mon­
       itor if a radius server is up.

       radclient reads radius attribute/value pairs from it stan­
       dard  input, or from a file specified on the command line.
       It then encodes these attribute/value pairs using the dic­
       tionary, and sends them to the remote server.

       The  User-Password attribute is automatically encrypted by


       -d raddb_directory
              The directory that contains the  RADIUS  dictionary
              files. Defaults to /etc/raddb.

       -f file
              File  to  read  the  attribute/value pairs from. If
              this is not specified, they are read from stdin.

       -i source_ip
              The source IP address to  use  for  sending  radius

       -x     Print out extra debugging information.

       -q     Go to quiet mode, and do not print out anything.

              The  hostname  or  IP address of the remote server.
              Optionally a UDP port can be specified. If  no  UDP
              port  is  specified,  it  is looked up in /etc/ser­
              vices. The service name looked for is  radacct  for
              accounting   packets,  and  radius  for  all  other
              requests. If a service is not  found  in  /etc/ser­
              vices, 1813 and 1812 are used respectively.

       tus-Server (not all servers support this.  Cistron-radiusd
       does since version 1.6.5):

              $ echo "User-Name = fnord" | radclient 12 s3cr3t
              Sending request to server, port 1812.
              radrecv: Packet from host code=2, id=140, length=54
                  Reply-Message = "Cistron Radius up 21 days, 02:05"


       radiusd(8), radtest(1).
