All Hail the new RadiusDesk

Written by Mfawa Alfred Onen on . Posted in Linux, Networking

Not so long ago, I posted a video of a powerful FreeRADIUS front end called YFi Hotspot Manager created by Dirk van der Walt. I am here with yet another announcement of a new project that Dirk is working on and it is called RadiusDesk. This is a modern webtop for FreeRADIUS using the latest technologies like REST APIs, ExtJs Javascript Library, CakePHP PHP framework and so on. The project is still pre-alpha and it is in active development (as seen in the SVN trunk) but because I always like to play with bleeding edge technologies, I have decided to post another video on how to setup RadiusDesk on CentOS 6 which should be the same with RHEL 6 and similar distros.

The links used in the Video can be found below so feel free to drop any comment and if you need help, I will be glad to assist.

    Hi, is there any way I can contact you? I need some assistance on setting a router with dd-wrt and radiusdesk. Nice posts!

    Hello Alfred.

    I tried to install RadiusDesk as explained in all video you posted but I had some problems. I sent you as attached files screen shots for any help.

    And also I want to know if it is also possible to use nginx replacing apache?

      Hey Freddy, I was too busy and I missed them in my pool of mails, kindly resend them so that I can take a look and send you possible fixes. As for replacing Apache with nginx, there is a video I will record and should be available next week or so on setting up RadiusDesk with nginx. Cheers!

        I sent files, I received your mail and I’m going to restart installation for tests.
