    RADIUS Authentication

    When RADIUS Authentication is enabled, end users can use their username and password from the RADIUS server to log in to ADAudit Plus.

    Steps to integrate the ADAudit Plus server with RADIUS

    1. Access your RADIUS server and find the /etc/raddb/ folder.
    2. Select the clients.conf file, and enter the ADAudit Plus server details.
      For example, if the name of the ADAudit Plus server is "ADAP" and its IP address is, add the following entry in the clients.conf file:
      client ADAP{
      ipaddr =
      secret = Radius@123
      require_message_authenticator = no
      nastype = other
    3. Note: Here, "Radius@123" is the Secret Key that must be entered in the ADAudit Plus web console while configuring RADIUS.
