       basic_radius_auth - Squid RADIUS authentication helper

       basic_radius_auth -f config file
       basic_radius_auth -h server name	 port ] [-i identifier ] -w secret [-t
       timeout ]

       basic_radius_auth allows Squid to connect to a RADIUS server  to	 vali‐
       date the user name and password of Basic HTTP authentication.

       -f configfile
		   Specifies the path to a configuration file. See the CONFIG‐
		   URATION section for details on the file content.

       -h server   Alternative method of specifying the server to connect to

       -p port	   Specify another server port where the RADIUS server listens
		   for	requests  if  different	 from the default RADIUS port.
		   Normally not specified.

       -i identifier
		   Unique identifier  identifying  this	 Squid	proxy  to  the
		   RADIUS  server.  If not specified the IP address is used to
		   identify the proxy.

       -w secret   Alternative method of specifying the shared	secret.	 Using
		   the	-f  option with a configuration file is generally more
		   secure and recommended.

       -t timeout  RADIUS request timeout. Default is 10 seconds.

       The configuration specifies how the helper  connects  to	 RADIUS.   The
       file contains a list of directives (one per line). Lines beginning with
       a # are ignored.

	      specifies the name or address of the RADIUS  server  to  connect

       secret somesecretstring
	      specifies the shared RADIUS secret.

       identifier nameofserver
	      specifies	 what  name the proxy should use to identify itself to
	      the RADIUS server.  This directive is optional.

       port portnumber
	      Specifies the port number	 or  service  name  where  the	helper
	      should connect.
