# LDAP setup
We need a back-end that contains a list of users with their passwords. You can choose to use the file /etc/freeradius/3.0/users instead of a full LDAP installation for small configurations (1-3 users), but you will feel the administrative pain very quickly. Do yourself a favour and save yourself from unneeded pain: use LDAP.
Since our LDAP server does not allow to be queried as anonymous, the FreeRADIUS server will need credentials to connect to the LDAP server and do some queries
## Generate a password for the FreeRADIUS user
# pwgen 30 1
# /usr/sbin/slappasswd -s baigah2cai6chaa5Osh1en3Ahde4Je
## Create a LDAP user for FreeRADIUS
dn: uid=FreeRADIUS,ou=services,dc=hsbxl,dc=be
objectclass: account
objectclass: simpleSecurityObject
objectclass: top
uid: FreeRADIUS
userpassword: {SSHA}l0uiXg0djOmSAf3SIcN44f7muWrLPpOt
## Configure FreeRADIUS to use LDAP
File /etc/freeradius/3.0/mods-enabled/ldap
ldap {
identity = 'uid=FreeRADIUS,ou=services,dc=hsbxl,dc=be'
password = baigah2cai6chaa5Osh1en3Ahde4Je
base_dn = 'dc=hsbxl,dc=be'
group {
filter = '(objectClass=groupOfNames)'
membership_filter = "(|(member=%{control:Ldap-UserDn})(memberUid=%{%{Stripped-User-Name}:-%{User-Name}}))"
## Test the setup
Once you got LDAP configured, you need to test if it is working correctly
If the test above succeeds, we can go to the next step below:
# Clients
The clients are the devices that will contact the RADIUS server for authentication. Clients can be any of the following:
* a switch
* a firewall
* an access point
* an application (web applications included)
* another RADIUS server acting as a proxy (think spaceFED)
## Setting up the first client
# Advanced configurations
## Cisco switch
## Juniper switch/firewall
## Unifi access points
