How Should I setup RADIUS?

How AuthAnvil RADIUS works

The AuthAnvil RADIUS Server provides RADIUS support via PAP and MSCHAP2 to offer strong authentication to firewalls, network devices and VPN servers within your network infrastructure. It provides mutual authentication via 128-bit RC4 encrypted session keys for MSCHAP2, giving strong authentication support to Microsoft’s Connection Manager and PPTP VPN.

The AuthAnvil RADIUS Server is a standalone windows service and is capable of running on any 32 bit or 64 bit platform that supports .NET 2.0. It does NOT require Microsoft’s Internet Authentication Service (IAS) or Network Policy Server (NPS) to function, but can coexist if you reconfigure it to use an alternate port.

More information on how to setup and configure RADIUS can be found in the documentation at
