       radattr.so - RADIUS utility plugin for pppd(8)

SYNOPSIS         top

       pppd [ options ] plugin radius.so plugin radattr.so

DESCRIPTION         top

       The radattr plugin for pppd causes all radius attributes returned
       by the RADIUS server at authentication time to be stored in the
       file /var/run/radattr.pppN where pppN is the name of the PPP
       interface.  The RADIUS attributes are stored one per line in the
       format "Attribute-Name Attribute-Value".  This format is
       convenient for use in /etc/ppp/ip-up and /etc/ppp/ip-down

       Note that you must load the radius.so plugin before loading the
       radattr.so plugin; radattr.so depends on symbols defined in

USAGE         top

       To use the plugin, simply supply the plugin radius.so plugin
       radattr.so options to pppd.
